Cristian Garcia, Linebacker, University of Florida

From team videographer, to walk-on, to scholarship linebacker to straight up hero; that’s Cristian Garcia in a nutshell. The 230-pound senior literally worked his way from the bottom in order to make a name for himself at one of college football’s premier programs. Garcia only has eight career tackles in Gators uniform between 2015 and 2016, but this year he’ll be in the spotlight and you can expect him to add to those numbers for the nation’s 22nd ranked team. As if that is not enough, Garcia is also a standout off the field. As was reported by ABC News Garcia was instrumental in saving a young women from a sexual assault on campus. Now that’s a man changing the face of the game.

The regular season has just kicked off so enjoy watching these ‘LLERO’s change the game this season.
