BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — One of the largest crowds in program history showed up for UCF football’s annual media day, packing the interview room at the stadium as well as Nicholson Fieldhouse Friday afternoon to cover the Knights.
Head Coach George O’Leary was up first and addressed the media for approximately 25 minutes. The first question he faced was if he had named a starting quarterback yet, which did not surprise him at all.
“No. I knew that would be your first question,” Coach O’Leary said, bringing laughs to the room. “It’s going to shake itself out. They’ve all had their good times and bad times the last two days. But we’re going to put the person out there that has the best opportunity to win and manage the chains.”
He also addressed his running backs early in his press conference.
“When you look at the football team, (William) Stanback stands out. There’s no question about it. He’s up around 228 and I think he’s faster. So we’re still going to be intact with the running game.”
After the press session, the 2014 Knights went into the stands of Bright House Networks Stadium for the team photo.
Following the shot, a select group of players met with the media in the fieldhouse, while all of the Knights had their headshots taken and got in front of green screens with UCF video services.
Along with photo shoots with several outlets, UCF’s flagship station 740 The Game was broadcasting remotely from Bright House as well.
