A Gator hunting gators. Yes you read that right. Florida senior safety Nick Washington hunts opponents down as a Gator on Saturdays. Then off the field, he willing engages live gators in the water.
ESPN wrote about his story Tuesday here:

As the article says and the photos show, Washington grew up playing sports, and hunting hogs or white-tailed deer along with fishing. And, he also now helps his dad who is licensed to catch alligators that have wandered into small ponds, yards or pools around the Jacksonville area.
All this wild life hunting sure takes away any fear on the football field where Washington started 6 of the first 10 games for Florida last season. He tallied 45 tackles which was good for 6th on the team before being injured for the season at LSU.
Washington will look to combine the physical aspect of his wildlife job in North Florida and the verbal communication of his job on the field to anchor the Gators back line next season.
Most importantly, you can’t say he will be afraid of anything. And we mean, anything.
