No. 4 Gators Get Boost from 'Lakeland Dreadnaught Association'

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida defensive tackle Clint McMillan can look in just about any direction on the practice field or in the locker room and see one of them.

The seven freshmen from Lakeland High have made an impact for the fourth-ranked Gators this season. Three of them played in the season opener, and Maurkice Pouncey started at right guard.

The Gators (1-0) are counting on even more from them Saturday night against Troy (0-1).

And the seven former Dreadnaughts are eager to pitch in. After all, they know a thing or two about repeating as champions. They won 45 consecutive games in high school and three straight state championships.

Shortly after celebrating another Class 5A title, cornerback Ahmad Black, defensive tackle John Brown, offensive linemen Maurkice and Michael Pouncey, running back Chris Rainey, linebacker Steven Wilks and receiver Paul Wilson signed with Florida.

Black, the Pouncey twins and Wilson enrolled in January and benefited from spring practice. The other three joined them in Gainesville this fall.
