Vernon Hargreaves takes on leadership role for Gators

Hoover, Alabama -- Florida Gators' sophomore cornerback, Vernon Hargreaves, is becoming more of a face for the Gators' football team. He was selected to attend the SEC Football Media Days, along with junior defensive end Dante Fowler and junior quarterback Jeff Driskel.

As a freshman he wasn't allowed to do media interviews last year. But the Wharton High grad from Tampa, sure made himself noticed on the field. He was named first team All-Freshman team in the SEC, and first team all-SEC.

"I just play with a certain confidence," Hargreaves told reporters. "I know what I can do. ... And that's just how I play the game. I think my knowledge of the game, because I've been around it so long. ... I know what to expect. ... I know what plays are coming, in a way... So I guess that's what sets me apart, just knowing football."

Florida begins fall practice August 4.
