UCF Knights football rebuilds defense

UCF Knights head to the field.

UCF Knights football camp is well underway, and with a number of senior defensive players gone from last year's team, the Knights will be looking for some younger guys to step up and shoulder the load.

The Knights lost 7 starters from last years defense that was ranked number 5 in the nation.

Young guys like 6', 300 lbs. sophomore defensive tackle Jamiyus Pittman are ready to step up.

Pittman played in all 13 games last season, racked up 19 tackles, 2 sacks and a forced fumble.

Pittman can bench 460 lbs. and squat 605 lbs., enough to earn him a spot in the prestigious Iron Knights Club - amongst the strongest players on the team.

You'll learn more about this year's UCF football team at 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 6th, when Inside UCF and The George O'Leary Show premiere on WRBW My65.
