Florida's president dunks on 6-11 center Gorjok Gak

Fall classes at many universities start on Monday and University of Florida President W. Kent Fuchs is jumping into the school year with two feet. Literally.

Fuchs teamed up with the Gators men's basketball team to dunk on 6-11 center Gorjok Gak using a mini basketball hoop that was held by 6-9 forward Kevarrius Hayes.

The unsuspecting Gak was looking down at his phone when Hayes snuck up behind him with the hoop and distracted him. Fuchs took care of the rest, throwing down a two-handed jam before busting out a shoulder shimmy as he was swarmed by cheering Florida students.

The Gators aren't the first team to be involved in on-campus posterizations. Florida Gulf Coast lived up to its "Dunk City" moniker this past winter by dunking on random students on campus.

Florida coach Mike White might want to see if Fuchs has any eligibility left.
