The Florida recipient says, “We come out victorious” against Alabama

Can’t get here soon enough this weekend.

After Gators’ former defensive defender Jalen Tabor said that Alabama’s Marco Wilson will ‘lock up’ DeVonta Smith in Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Championship showdown, another Florida member has made a shot at the Crimson Tide.

Trevon Grimes, a senior from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, sees the Gators win the game.

The 6-foot-4, 218-pounder at wide receiver has 34 catches for 511 yards and eight touchdowns. In an interview he had with reporters, Grimes didn’t hold back when it came to filming Alabama.

“We know this is going to be a dog fight,” said Grimes. “We know we will emerge victorious.”

Despite a 34-37 defeat to LSU at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium last week, Florida is confident how it will match the Tide at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. As Nick Saban and Alabama pursue their seventh SEC title, the Gators are on the hunt for the first conference crown since 2008 with Tim Tebow. With a lot of talk comes a lot of entertainment and fans will be entertained this week.
