We are so very fortunate and appreciate the many blessings and folks who have honors us with their friendship and support. Both Kathy and I appreciate each person more than we can express.
To pass this appreciation forward, we have to recognize and honor the efforts of the Tim Tebow Foundation. He continues to bring joy and happiness to many who have many struggles every day. Here is a letter Tim recently penned on his foundation website:
My early years were spent in the Philippines where my parents served as missionaries. My experiences there and the training from my parents who instilled in me the importance of God’s word, the salvation that we have in His Son Jesus, and the responsibility that we have to give back to others, gave me a desire to make a difference in people’s lives.
At the age of 15, I visited a remote village that had never seen visitors. There I met a boy named Sherwin who would impact my life more than anyone I have ever met. Sherwin was born with his feet on backwards and was viewed as “cursed” in his village. When the people saw me hold Sherwin, they realized that the good news of Jesus Christ applies to everyone. It was then that my passion grew to help people. That’s why in 2010, I was so excited to create the Tim Tebow Foundation with a mission to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
The Christian faith is about loving Jesus and loving people, and that is what we are trying to do with this foundation and all of our outreaches. Whether it is spending a weekend encouraging a child with a life threatening illness through a W15H, helping a family adopt an international child with special needs, crowning kings and queens of the prom, or by showing God’s love through our four other outreaches, our goal is to let people know that God loves them and that they are worthy.
We would not be able to accomplish our mission without God’s blessings and the support of our generous donors and partners. I hope that you will explore our site to see what we have been able to do. We hope that you will consider joining our team through prayer and financial support to help change lives. Together we WILL make a difference!
If you are as moved by this as I was, his website address is http://www.timtebowfoundation.org
GatorsVB Head Coach Mary Wise wins the US MarineCorps AVCA Division I National Coach of the Year!
Long overdue recognition for a truly special Gator. She is the Dean of all Gator Coaches.
Florida is finalizing a deal to make Dan Mullen its next head coach, a source told ESPN’s Chris Low.
Mullen has been the coach at Mississippi State since 2009. His 69-46 record for the Bulldogs makes him the second-winningest coach in school history, behind only Jackie Sherrill. The Bulldogs are 8-4 (4-4 SEC) this season.
if this works out, we owe our players to get firmly behind this team and do everything possible to make it great to be a Florida Gator (again).
Thursday’s win is the 400th for the Gator program. It is also the 400th UF win for Becky Burleigh, who has led the program since its debut in the 1995 season.
Congrats to Coach and a great team 🐊

Gators Rated as Top Program in the Country
Sep. 25, 2017 Baseball
Over the past two weeks, the staff at D1baseball.com has released its rankings of the Top 100 Programs in the country in an attempt to assess the overall health of all 300 schools in Division I baseball.
Fresh off the first national title in program history, D1baseball.com selected the Florida Gators as the top program in the country.
Check out what D1Baseball.com’s Kendall Rogers had to say about the Gators:
It’s hard to argue with the facts, and here they are:
Florida has made six trips to the College World Series in the past eight seasons, more than any school in the country.
UF and North Carolina are the only schools EVER to make six CWS trips in an eight-year span.
The Gators have 156 wins over the past three seasons, more than any school in the country.
Under head coach Kevin O’Sullivan, UF has eight national seeds in 10 seasons and earned a top four seed seven times in the past eight seasons.
Since 2010, the Gators have won four Southeastern Conference titles — the most of any team in arguably the toughest conference in college baseball.
In 10 years under O’Sullivan, Florida has won 192 SEC games, the most in the conference.
A noon kickoff on September 30th.
Las Vegas released the betting lines for Florida’s game against Vanderbilt on Saturday. The Gators opened as 10.5-point favorites according to VegasInsiders.com, but the line quickly shifted to UF being seven-point favorites.
Florida is 2-1 on the season with a 2-0 record in SEC play. However, SEC East foe Vanderbilt is currently 3-1 on the year while being 0-1 in conference play.
The game will kickoff at noon ET from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla. ESPN will televise the contest to a national audience.
