ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF Arena floor was at capacity Thursday for the 2012 edition of the Countdown to Kickoff Luncheon. Fans were treated to an inside look at this year's football team by head coach George O'Leary and his staff, while there also was a jam-packed silent auction, appearances by the Marching Knights and the spirit program and sensational highlight videos produced by the UCF Video Services department.
Guest speaker Tim Green delivered an inspiring motivational speech before the team was introduced, and he spoke of his time playing for coach O'Leary at Syracuse, rooming with Brett Favre in the NFL and the importance of getting a degree and how UCF continues to rank among the best in the country in graduating student-athletes.
