About Ryan Rosenbaum

Hey there Gator Nation! My name is Ryan Rosenbaum, and I am the main guy in charge of new Gator Grind. I am a Sophmore on the Men's Swimming and Diving team and a Telecommunications Production major in the classroom. Along with my role as the head of the grind, I am also responsible for what the Grind does on all social media, as well as the "In the Eye of the Gator" articles and a many more. The Grind for me is much more then a blog for athletes at the University, it is doing something that no one else in the nation is doing and as a student of the Telecommunications field, being on the cutting edge is always a great thing. At the University of Florida we have the undying loyalty of the Gator Nation and all of its great fans, so what better way to reward our fans then to give them a fully immersed look into what it's like being a Student Athlete at UF. I am dedicated to the Grind becoming a tradition at the University of Florida and look forward to seeing it grow. Keep Calm and Grind on. GO GATORS
