Florida safety out

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

Florida safety Mar­cell Har­ris will miss the 2017 sea­son with a torn Achilles ten­don, the school an­nounced Thurs­day. Har­ris recorded a team-lead­ing 73 tack­les dur­ing 2016, in­clud­ing 39 dur­ing the sea­son’s fi­nal four games. This in­cluded a stop on the goal-line stand at LSU. The fifth-year se­nior from Or­lando, Fla., was one of just three re­turn­ing starters on de­fense for the Ga­tors. Last week at the SEC me­dia days, Har­ris pre­dicted Florida would not suf­fer a drop-off de­spite los­ing eight starters from a top-10 de­fense. “Best de­fense in the nation. That’s how we come out,” Har­ris said. “That’s how we go about things. That’s what our at­ti­tude is: we come out to be the best ev­ery time.”
