(UCF Athletics) – University of Central Florida’s senior running back Greg McCrae has been featured as the newest team member to get “mic’d up” during the Knight’s latest practice.
McCrae is currently UCF’s career record holder with a yards-per-carry average of 7.2. With 19 career rushing touchdowns, McCrae ranks 10th all-time at UCF.
McCrae has 1,862 career rushing yards, which ranks him 11th in UCF’s history.
The Knights will kick off the 2020 season at Georgia Tech, Saturday, Sept. 19 at 3:30 on ESPN.
Earlier this week, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl released the preseason watch list for the 2020 Dodd Trophy.
This year’s list includes 13 of the nation’s top college football coaches and among them is UCF’s Josh Heupel.
The Dodd Trophy, college football’s most coveted national coaching award, celebrates the head coach of a team who enjoys success on the gridiron, while also stressing the importance of scholarship, leadership and integrity – the three pillars of legendary coach Bobby Dodd’s coaching philosophy.
The watch list was created through a selection process by the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, taking into consideration each program’s graduation rate, commitment to service and charity in the community, projected success for the 2020 season and Academic Progress Rate (APR).
Heupel has led UCF to a 22-4 record in two seasons at the helm. He made an immediate impact during his first year at UCF in 2018, leading the Knights to their second consecutive undefeated regular season and American Athletic Conference Championship. Heupel became just the third coach in history to lead a team to an undefeated regular season in his first year as a head coach.
