ORLANDO, Fla. ( – When three collegiate offensive linemen walk into any building it is quite an entrance. On Wednesday, UCF football’s Joey Grant and Jordan McCray and Justin McCray made their own impression on over 75 boys at the FC Sports Camp at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

Armed with posters and sharpies, the linemen took the opportunity not just to sign autographs, but to share their personal stories and encourage the young campers to try and fulfill any goal they set out to reach. The key words of advice by all three were: it all comes down to education.

Each took time to talk about the importance of keeping grades their grades up in school so they could attain all of their goals. They also discussed their career aspirations following their football careers.

After each took turns speaking, the campers hit them with a barrage of questions ranging from how fast they were, what their favorite professional football teams were to if the McCrays always got a long or where Grant got the socks he was wearing.
