A former Florida football player turned-WWE Superstar is teaming up with his alma mater to eradicate the problem of hunger.

Thaddeus Bullard was a defensive end for Florida in the late 1990's. Since then he's reinvented himself as Titus O'Neil, a professional wrestler with WWE. Versus Tennessee, the former Gator will challenge the Florida fan base to commit 3,000 hours of volunteer time. If the request is met, O'Neil will act with his own pledge.

This event is part of Gator Good, a university-run organization created to delve into the university's impact beyond the campus in Gainesville. By the sounds of it, O'Neil is excited to participate in the worthy cause.

"This Gator Good campaign will not only show how great the Gator Nation is, but also how great anyone can be when they give back to those that need it most."
