OnlyGators.com staff

Staff writers: News and analysis found on OnlyGators.com are written by a set of journalists with degrees from the University of Florida who have decided to cover the program out of passionate service to the fan base and a desire to see OnlyGators.com continue after its founder stepped away from the website.

Michael Nash, graphic designer: Nash was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and moved to New Jersey as a youngster but never stopped having an interest in the Gators. Although he did not attend UF, passion for the school combined with his personal interest in graphic design led him to offer his services to OnlyGators.com. His graphics can also be found all across the site.

Former staff and contributors

Adam Allen: A four-year forward with Florida basketball under head coach Billy Donovan, Allen was a four-star recruit who was forced to retire due to multiple knee surgeries.

Shannon Snell, columnist: A three-year starter at guard for the Gators under head coaches Steve Spurrier and Ron Zook, Snell has provided his experienced take on the football team exclusively on OnlyGators.com since 2012.
