“‘47 visited Gainesville to explore the history of Florida Gators football. After examining images and memorabilia, we created the ‘47 ARCHIVE: Florida Gators collection.
The 1966 team would become even more memorable years later, as Heisman-winning QB Steve Spurrier returned as head coach at Florida in the ‘90s. In 1996, Spurrier surpassed his former coach, Graves, to become the new all-time winningest Florida coach. Today Spurrier is among the Gator legends immortalized in the “Ring of Honor” along with the likes of Emmitt Smith.
It’s these key figures and moments of a storied program that inspired the ’47 ARCHIVE: Florida Gators collection.”
