KEY PLAYER FROM GAME
No one player can be deemed player of the game. Instead, the entire team is being put under this distinction. Not just for tonight but for this entire season. The Florida Gators of 2017 will go down as having the toughest recovery of their team’s history and it now culminates in a College World Series championship. Congratulations to the Florida Gators for this historic achievement.
GAME RECAP AND ANALYSIS
They paid their dues. Time after time. They started 0-3 in the SEC. Now, the Florida Gators are champions of the baseball world. After a 2-0 start and the LSU Tigers making it 2-1, the Gators would make it 6-1 to seal the deal. Now for the first time ever in the history of the College World Series, the University of Florida are going down as champions.
This moment is monumental for the Fighting Gainesville Gators. When the world doubted them, they believed. They made the upset happen. They will not take that from Florida. No one will ever be able to remove their name from the annals of college baseball. Not only does the title belong to the SEC. It just means more because it now belongs to Florida. 103 years of blood, sweat and tears now results in a championship season.
The miracle is complete. 0-3 to a ring. Not only just a ring, resulting in a two-game sweep against conference rivals LSU, now ends in the biggest moment in the history of Florida baseball. 2017 is the year of the Gators. Finally, they have a championship. The College World Series is now ours to defend. 2018 is now our time to defend THEIR turf.
