Florida quarterback Kyle Trask saw his dreams become his reality on Friday as he was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the final pick of the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Manvel, Texas native threw for 4,283 yards and a nation leading 43 touchdowns in 2020, leading the Gators to the SEC Championship Game and another New Year’s Six bowl game.
Trask’s rise from a two-star prospect out of high school to a Heisman Trophy finalist is one destined to become a film, but his dedication to his craft and his willingness to wait, learn, and develop, allowed for him to become a fan favorite upon taking over the starting role.
Trask heads to Tampa, just a short drive from Gainesville, where he will have the opportunity to learn behind, arguably, the best quarterback to play in the game, Tom Brady.
