Friday was the draft signing deadline for Major League baseball, and a familiar face signed on the dotted line, except he'll probably be playing football this fall.

Wakulla graduate and current Florida Gator quarterback Feleipe Franks signed with Boston for $40,000 after being drafted by the Red Sox in the 31st round.

Boston Globe sports report Alex Speier said that Franks has expressed interest in exploring pro baseball down the road if football doesn't work out, but looks like he's focused on football for now. Franks is set to represent the Gators at next week's SEC media days.
