I recently learned of the passing of AJ Labove, long time assistant & Spring Sports Equipment Manager at the University of Florida. AJ came to UF following a career in the Air Force. First assisting the legendary Bus Fernandez with football and later taking charge of the spring sports equipment room near the track and Perry Field. Stern but fair in his dealings with the athletes AJ endeared himself to all. A loyal Gator fan who retired to Texas he provided many great services and stories to the athletes at UF.
