ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCFKnights.com) – For the second time in the preseason, UCF held a morning practice as it completed its 11th session of camp on Saturday.
It also was the third straight day the Knights went inside Nicholson Fieldhouse for practice.
The day included a lot of skelly work, and drills that saw the offensive line battle the defensive line as well as the wide receivers go up against the defensive backs.
The Knights defense made several big plays throughout the morning. Up front, the D-line knocked down a lot of passes, highlighted by defensive tackle Tony Guerad batting down three balls. In the secondary, Shaquill Griffincame through with a nice interception.
UCF’s deep pass play of the day came on a strike from Justin Holman to Hayden Jones, and in the ground gameC.J. Jones produced a pair of solid rushes thanks to the blocking of the offensive line.
The 12th day of 2015 UCF football preseason camp is set for Sunday. Campus will get its fall semester underway on Aug. 24.
