It’s been six years since Ahmad Black picked off a Matt McGloin pass and returned it 80 yards for a touchdown to end the Outback Bowl- and an unbelievable career- in style. But the impact, and the legacy, he left at Florida will never be forgotten.
Who could forget the interception and long return against Georgia in 2008? How about the way he climbed the ladder to snatch the game clinching interception against Tennessee in 2009? And mostly: who could forget the unbelievable acrobatic play he made to steal the ball away from an Oklahoma receiver to set up the Gators’ game winning touchdown in the national championship game against Oklahoma?
I for one could not. And so I called him up on the phone to relive those glory days with him, and have him take me through them all through his eyes. I considered writing it all up to craft a well well written story, but I decided against that because Ahmad Black’s glory days aren’t just one story, they’re full of stories- and most importantly, they’re all his to tell. With his voice.
So clear an hour off your schedule to hear a true Gator legend sit down and relive his playing days. Along the way, you’ll hear answers to dozens of questions you’ve probably always wanted to ask him (or at least someone who played a key role on the 2008 team’s success.)
And let Ahmad Black pilot you on a journey back in time to an unforgettable era in Gator history.
