Florida Gators’ Skyler Mornhinweg, Gerald Willis brawl


Florida Gators’ backup quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and freshman defensive lineman Gerald Willis reportedly fought on Monday night.

After the Florida Gators inserted quarterback Treon Harris into their game against the Tennessee Volunteers, replacing Jeff Driskel, the Florida Gators rallied from a 9-0 fourth quarter deficit to win 10-9, it has gone all downhill.

On Monday, Harris was suspended indefinitely because he is being investigated for sexual battery. Later that night, two players, backup quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and freshman defensive lineman Gerald Willis, got into a fight.

According to Arek Sarkissian of Gator Sports, the two players got into a fight on Monday night.

"UF police received a complaint that Gators quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg got into a fight with a teammate, defensive lineman Gerald Willis. Both players subsequently declined to press charges against each other, said Maj. Brad Barber, a University Police Department spokesman.Barber said UPD officers were called to the stadium about 7 p.m. after receiving reports about the fight. Only one of the players was still at the scene when officers arrived, Barber said."

There have been reports Willis could be kicked off of the team but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

The Florida Gators will return to action Saturday night when they host the LSU Tigers (7:30, SEC Network).
