The University of Florida announced that they will begin building a $15 million indoor practice facility. The Gators are the last SEC member to address an indoor practice facility.
Athletic Director Jeremy Foley added,
“This is something we have talked about internally for some time. We have always been able to utilize the O’Connell Center as an indoor option for the football team, but with the renovation starting this spring, it will no longer be available.”
The indoor practice facility will be built on the site of the Sanders Football Practice Fields, located adjacent to McKethan Stadium and will house a 120-yard synthetic turf football field, additional space for practice drills on the north end of the field, three camera platforms, satellite training-room facilities, equipment storage and restrooms.
This has to be exciting for recruits and Gator fans and did we fail to mention new coach Jim McElwain?
