Former UF quarterback Danny Wuerffel will host Gator Growl 2022

Gator Growl announced that Danny Wuerffel will be returning to the swamp to host Gator Growl in 2022. He will join headliner Flo Rida and opener Olivia O’Brien on the Stephen C. O’Connell Center stage.

Wuerffel was quarterback for UF Football from 1993 to 1996, where the Gators were SEC champions four straight years. In 1996 he won the Heisman Trophy, which recognizes the best footballer of the year. Later that year he led the Gators to their first national championship.

Now Wuerffel is the executive director of Desire Street Ministries, an organization that helps underserved communities by coaching clergy across the country.

Gator Growl Executive Producer Jared Weingard said the UF community is excited to welcome Wuerffel as the host.

“Danny’s ongoing commitment to the Gator Nation makes him the perfect choice to host this year’s show,” Weingard said.

Gator Growl takes place on October 7th at 7pm. Tickets are currently on sale.
