In an unfortunate turn of events, Florida redshirt freshman linebacker David Reese will miss the entirety of the 2019 season with a torn Achilles tendon. The injury occurred during an offseason workout, and comes as a bit of disappointing news for the young athlete who hoped to challenge for the “buck” rush end position.

Even before the injury, this was an unlikely move for the talented freshman this year. Mostly because of the transfer of talented edge rusher Jonathan Greenard. Reese tallied four tackles before redshirting in 2018, and looks to be a promising young talent. For now, that promise will have to wait for another season, to be realized.

It is important to note that Florida has two players named David Reese, and it is the elder Reese that will be leading the Gators’ defensive efforts this season.
