ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – UCF Football Preseason Camp is winding down. After the 14th practice of the month, the Knights are looking forward to playing against and game-planning for another team.
Junior Quarterback McKenzie Milton spoke to the media after practice and talked about what he’s doing better this preseason.
“I think I’m leading better. I think I’m playing from the pocket a little bit better. I think my footwork’s more defined. I think I’m more on cue with my wide receivers,” said Milton.
“I think it’s going to show come August 30.”
Milton also expressed how far the defense has improved this offseason.
“Man, they’ve made big strides since spring ball. There was a little uncertainty with what they were doing in spring ball, but now we’ve been trading blows throughout camp, and they look really good. They’ve been getting a lot of turnovers,” said Milton.
“The DBs look really good. The D-Line’s been getting after the passer. I think they’re going to be one of the best in our conference.”
Senior Safety Kyle Gibson says a few underclassmen are turning heads in Fall Camp.
“They’ve been coming along pretty fast. Derek Gainous, that’s actually my roommate, and he was here this spring,” said Gibson.
“I’m really surprised at Dyllon Lester, to be a freshman and to only be here a couple months, he’s progressing pretty fast.”
UCF will be out in full force Saturday to sign autographs for fans in attendance at Spectrum Stadium from 6:30-8 p.m.
