Florida mascot Albert tries out kicking

  Albert the Gator is getting in on Florida's kicking tryouts.

On Monday, Florida put out word that they were looking for kickers. With Austin Hardin and Jorge Powell both injured, eligible Florida students would have the chance to tryout to be the Gators’ kicker if needed in their next game against Georgia on Oct. 31.

Even Gators mascot Albert is trying his hand foot:

Albert’s kick was good, albeit barely, but that's pretty impressive for a 6-foot costumed Gator. However, the attempt was shorter than an extra point, so he may not be the answer Florida is looking for. Still, we appreciate the effort.
