ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – Competition was the name of the game as #KnightsCamp continued Monday morning at Nicholson Fieldhouse.
The UCF football team completed practice number nine in shells in preparation for Tuesday’s first scrimmage of 2017.
“Competition has been at an all-time high around here. For as long as we’ve been here, there’s been competition at every position. Even though the line and Shaquem have kind of etched their spots, we’ve had a ton of competition,” said UCF defensive coordinator Erik Chinander.
“There’s been extreme competition at all the other linebacker and defensive back spots. I’m just fired up to watch these guys run around and compete, and we’ll see who can play when the lights come on tomorrow.”
UCF Offensive Coordinator Troy Walters talked about the progress of the team thus far.
“I’m very excited about our progress. We’ve come a long way. The guys are picking up the things we’re throwing at them,” said Walters.
“The thing about our defense is that they give us so many different looks. We may go over something in our game plan and our playbook versus one coverage, but we’re getting multiple coverages with our defense. It’s making us better; making us sharper. We’re light years ahead of where we were last year.”
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.
