Fred Weary

Years at UF: 1994 to 1997

Position: Corner

Turn back the clock to 1996 and there you’ll find one of the leaders on the national champions, none other than Fred Weary.

A three-year starter for Steve Spurrier, Weary has without a doubt one of the most decorated careers in UF history.

Weary once had six interceptions in a season and still holds the school career interception record with 15.

He was an All-American in 1997 and was a starter on a defense that won SEC Championships from 1994 to 1997.

Weary ended up being drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the fourth-round.

He had an underwhelming pro career but you’d be hard-pressed finding another Gator defensive player with the resume that Weary has.
