Richardson is well-known for his pregame flips, and lively arm. Trask has been drawn to Richardson. Richardson was praised by Trask during a telephone interview on Thursday with the Orlando Sentinel.
Trask stated, "I always like describing him as he's the LeBron James in football." I know he can do crazy dunks. He won the dunk contest his first semester at campus. It was easy to see his athleticism.
Trask refers to a viral video in which Trask, a 6-foot-4, 236-pounder, went into beast mode during a pick-up basketball game.
Richardson ran 7 times for 267 yards that day. Many speculated that Richardson would replace Jones in Gainesville as quarterback, but Mullen repeatedly stated that Jones would continue to be the starter. Trask stated that Jones has his own skillset, but he would be happy to see both of them on the field more often.
Trask stated, "He's an extremely smart coach." "He's going find the best way for this team win, whatever it may be."
Richardson will likely see more playing time after he has fully recovered from the hamstring injury that kept Richardson out of two games. Florida came off a defeat at Kentucky of 20-13 on Saturday, but will be back in action this weekend against Vanderbilt.
