ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – The 2017 UCF Football Countdown to Kickoff Luncheon got Knight fans excited for the upcoming season over the weekend.
Following a morning practice outdoors on Friday, the Knights made their way to CFE Arena to join fans in gearing up for the 2017 campaign with highlight videos and player interviews, in addition to comments from Head Coach Scott Frost and his former coach at Nebraska, Dr. Tom Osborne.
Coach Osborne talked about his visit to the UCF campus.
“It’s been fun to be down here and get a better look at facilities and what they’re doing. I was out at practice today for about an hour and they’ve got some good looking athletes,” said Osborne.
“They have a good chance to have a fine season, and certainly be improved.”
The college football hall of fame coach went on to compliment the university, as a whole, and the fast development the university has undergone in a relative short period of time.
“I think it has a lot of potential. It’s still a young university, but growing very rapidly. It looks like the athletic programs are really improving substantially.”
Osborne reflected on Coach Frost and the opportunity UCF provides him.
“He’s got a good situation here. He’s got a lot to do here. One thing about athletics – you better focus on the here and the now and not be thinking down the road. I think he can take UCF to a pretty good level.”
The second season of UCF Football under head coach Scott Frost is just around the corner. Fans can explore all of the new ticket options at Spectrum Stadium by visiting WeRiseandConquer.com or calling (407) 823-1000.
