WATCH: Florida’s Duke Dawson hits LSU WR in the face

Florida cornerback Duke Dawson will likely find himself in the NFL here soon. But he’s going to have to keep his emotions in check if he hopes to make a career of this whole football thing.

In the second quarter of Florida’s game against LSU on Saturday, Dawson threw a punch (or a slap) at Tigers wide receiver Russell Gage.

It landed smack on Gage’s face mask, an incident that could have injured Dawson himself.


Somehow, Dawson was not ejected for the smack. This, in a college football world where players are ejected for questionable targeting calls on a weekly basis.

In any event, we’re pretty sure Gators head coach Jim McElwain will have a conversation with his young defensive back about this incident moving forward.
