STOCKBRIDGE HEAD COACH STEVE COLLINS ON VANCE KING: "Vance is an explosive player. He is very exciting to watch. He is a player who can do a lot of things on the field and he is going to come in there and get a shot at running back. His strengths are his overall body strength and his speed. He is a top-notch kid who will come in there and represent UCF very well."
