Despite struggling in its two largest money-generating sports, the Florida Gators and their six Southeastern Conference titles once again proved that they were the most dominant athletics program in the league during the 2014-15 as they were named recipients of the overall SEC All-Sports Award for the ninth consecutive season and 23rd time in the last 24 campaigns.

Though the Gators won the overall award, they ended a six-season streak of sweeping the three titles, which also include individual men’s and women’s crowns. In fact, Florida achieved the overall title without leading either of the gender categories.

Florida has now won 25 overall titles (nine straight), 21 women’s titles and 18 men’s titles. The Gators are also the only program to sweep all three categories in a single season, doing so 14 times overall, seven times in the last nine years and six times in a row (2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, 2013-14).

All 16 of Florida’s sports (nine women’s, seven men’s) were counted with cross country, indoor and outdoor track & field combined into one unit per gender. (The lacrosse program competes in the Big East.)

The Gators won six SEC titles over this period – volleyball, men’s indoor track & field, men’s swimming & diving, women’s tennis, softball, men’s outdoor track and field –

Florida still leads the SEC with 224 all-time team titles.

The 2014-15 edition of the awards were presented by GateHouse Media. Prior iterations were awarded by league itself (1973-74 to 1993-94), The New York Times Regional Newspaper Group (1994-95 to 2010-11) and Halifax Media Group (2011-12 to 2013-14).

    Good work Mr. Foley!

    Good work, state of Florida. It’s a place where you can play softball, volleyball, golf, baseball, swim, dive and run track year round. UF is also the best learning institution in the state with the most beautiful campus so it recruits itself. We should always win the Spring sports.

    We should also always win at football, with the best HS football in the country. We also have some very good HS basketball but we can’t seem to keep the recruits in state.

    Foley is mainly a caretaker who has done some good things but who also can and has screwed it up. The Muschamp severance package with no restrictions on Muschamp’s ability to go after recruits who we paid him to develop relationships with was a joke. He needs better lawyers or to learn how to draft a better contract.

      We are all sure you could have done a better job. AD is a really tough job. Hindsight is always the best view for us experts. Foley is acknowledge by real experts as one the top ADs in D1 (Top 5 is what I’ve heard). During his tenure UF has consistently excelled in all sports, especially the minor ones. Winning minor sport championships is how the All-Sport championships are won. Finding and hiring the quality minor sports coaches we have is Jeremy’s most valuable contribution to our winning this award virtually every year! Who else at UF should get credit for our All-Sport award? In addition, he has kept the UF sports business fiscally sound and profitable. Yes, football is a big deal and we have not been very successful in the recent past. It’s the most competitive college sport and we will be back …. someday. I believe Jeremy Foley is doing everything he can to make UF champions in all sports every year.
