ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - The UCF Fan Fest is an event that introduces the current year football team and staff to the student body and general fan base, ahead of the Knights first game on Sept. 3 against Florida International.
Close to a thousand people were in attendance as the players signed autographs and talked with the fans.
We've had a very hard training camp. It's been hot and humid and the kids have worked extremely hard," said UCF receivers coach Sean Beckton. "It gives those guys an opportunity to break the monotony and go out and meet the fans."
The Knights have one more training camp practice and then regular season practice begins. In preparing for FIU, we asked Coach Beckton if that helps to increase the focus.
"The kids have one big scrimmage tomorrow and we will sit back and analyze everything and start school on Monday. Then, we still have camp going on throughout the first part of the week."
