OGGOA is now on day three of our planking watch as Florida Gators student-athletes try to up the ante and take the game to another level. On Thursday, some Florida softball, soccer and women’s basketball players joined in on the fun, but redshirt freshman defensive end Lynden Trail continues to steal the show. Will someone catch up to him or overtake him? Only time will tell…

If you still need to catch up, here are the posts containing the pictures of what Trail and some other football players did Tuesday and Wednesday. Here are Trail’s newest submissions for Thursday as he takes it up a notch:

Even Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden got in on the fun…

The ladies’ efforts are more than respectable with sophomore pitcher/utility player Ensley Gammel and shortstop Cheyenne Coyle representing softball; junior forward Jennifer George, redshirt senior guard Jordan Jones and frosh G Carlie Needles featured for basketball; and sophomore F Taylor Travis taking a seat for soccer. Leading the way here, of course, are ladies from the gymnastics team.

Last but not least are another pair of submissions from the football team featuring redshirt freshman defensive tackle Leon Orr, sophomore wide receiver Robert Clark, sophomore tackle Ian Silberman and NFL centers Maurkice and Mike Pouncey

    OK. So here is the deal. This is awesome. However, I dont want to encourage him to do anything where he can get hurt. This appears to be a lot about balance, but if he falls off the “no parking” brick and hurts himself, we’ll be down a DE. Let’s encourage this but hope they remain safe. And yes, I know people can get hurt doing anything, even riding a scooter. See Patchan.

    I don’t really “get” this planking thing, nor do I think there is anything to “get”, but I will admit this is funny as heck. HAHAHAHAHA

    This has gone to a whole new “level.”

    How long until we see Machen planking around campus?

  4. GatorRx says:

    That;s some funny stuff right there. Good efforts all around, but LT is the king of planking!

  5. SaraGator says:

    This is clean wholesome competition!

  6. LawGator says:

    Haha too funny!
    Is it safe to be on those transformer boxes though?

    Lets go ahead and call it quite before he falls off the top of the door and brakes something. Again, the socks with the sandals drives me insane.

    Are the pounceys on campus now finishing a degree? I know mike went 4 years…

    Keep hoping to see some breaking news in recruiting and I see pictures of student-athletes lying on their stomach’s? I guess I don’t get it.
