51 Days to Gator Football – #51 Brandon Spikes (’06-’09)

Brandon “I’ll Rip Your Eyes Out” Spikes was born in Shelby, North Carolina. He played under Urban Meyer‘s Florida Gators from 2006 to 2009. Brandon almost committed to ‘Bama, but made the wise choice to follow Mr. Tebow to Titletown, Florida, where the pair brought two, count ’em, two national championships to the Swamp. Mr. Spikes registered 307 tackles (178 solo), 31.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 fumbles forced, 4 fumbles recovered, six interceptions with 139 return yards and a TD, at least one set of eyeballs ripped out (Waushan Ealey), plus a few alleged decapitations on the field (don’t worry…they are University of Georgia players, so nobody is losing sleep over the missing bodies). Mr. Spikes had a great mentor in Brandon Siler, as the Gators set a record for most tackles by starting linebackers named Brandon. Mr. Spikes was named first-team All-SEC from ’07 to ’09, and first-team All-American in ’08 and ’09.
