ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – After competing outside at the UCF practice facility the first two days of camp, the Knights spent day three in Nicholson Fieldhouse.
Friday’s session went for just over two hours inside the air-conditioned indoor facility.
Defensive Coordinator Randy Shannon spoke on the progress of the defense from spring to camp.
“Today was probably the first time we came out and we really played as a team, we got physical, both sides of the football, situational things were great, the communications on both sides of the football was phenomenal,” said Shannon.
“When you see that much improvement on day three, then you see an outlook that’s been made positive.”
On Thursday the first Amway Coaches Poll of the 2018 season was released.
The Knights, who finished 2017 undefeated and seventh in the poll, came in at 23rd. It marked the first time UCF has ever been ranked in the Top 25 before the start of the season.
The highlight of the day for many of the Knights was likely after the final huddle. Head Coach Josh Heupel’s daughter Hannah handed out cookies to the players on their way out of Nicholson Fieldhouse and into the cold tubs. Check out this awesome moment below.
