His first season behind center in Gainesville didn’t go as well as hoped, but Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks took time over the weekend to make a winning contribution off the field along with Gators legend Tim Tebow.

Franks participated in Gainesville’s “Night to Shine” event organized by Tebow. With 500 locations both in the United States and around the world, the Night to Shine is a prom event for teenagers with special needs.

Scenes from the event show Franks in action.

Franks wasn’t the only SEC quarterback getting involved: Alabama’s Jalen Hurts also participated in the Night to Shine, although not in Gainesville.

In his first season of play with the Gators, Franks was 125-of-229 (54.6 percent) with 1,438 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. He is on course to return to the team for the first season under new coach Dan Mullen, but his starting place will be challenged by four-star true freshman Emory Jones of Franklin (Ga.) Heard County.
