He was a steady contributor for the Gators in his first two seasons, playing in all 13 games as a reserve in 2018 (69-424-6.1, two TDs rushing; 5-20-4.0 receiving) and in 12 games during his sophomore campaign (54-305-5.6, four TDs rushing; 4-30-7.5 receiving). Pierce landed the starting job in 2020, leading the team in rushing with 503 yards and four rushing scores on 106 carries (4.7 per; also 17-156-9.2 one TD receiving). He started once in 13 games in 2021 but still topped UF with 13 rushing scores (100-574-5.7) and contributed as a receiver (19-216-11.4, three TDs). Pierce had one of the best quotes of the year when asked why he was playing in the team's bowl game even though he had a Senior Bowl invite in hand: "Why? Because I'm a Gator, bro." -- by Chad Reuter I love that last sentence in the quote. Edited April 30, 2022 by Texansfan713 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
