University of Florida Gators Football – The Program

Florida Gators – First Football Season:

The 1906 Florida football team was the first official varsity team fielded by the University of Florida. They were known as “Pee Wee’s Boys” in honor of their coach, Jack “Pee Wee” Forsythe. “Pee Wee’s Boys” beat the Rollins College Tars 6–0 in their first game played in Gainesville, Florida on October 26, 1906, and finished their inaugural season with a winning record of 5–3.

Florida Gators – The Name:

The exact origin of Florida’s nickname, the “Gators,” is unknown. But the name obviously reflects local culture, as alligators are very common in the Florida area.
