Madison Maring

What is your favorite part of gameday?

Running onto the field in a full stadium with bright lights and cheering is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had at UCF so far, and it only gets better from there. The Knights Spellout is my favorite part of Pregame- It’s so hype, fun to march, and the crowd loves it!

What do you like about Marching Knights?

While playing the music in MKs is so much fun, one of my favorite things about it is the lasting relationships that I have formed because of it. Not only in my own section, but in other sections as well as the drum majors. So far, I have met all of my best friends in Marching Knights!

What are you most excited about for this season?

Every season, the thing I am always most excited about is bonding with my section. While it’s so hard to say goodbye to our graduating seniors, it’s so exciting to say hello to our new members and welcome them into our family.

Describe a favorite hobby of yours.

I cycle in and out of new hobbies so quickly that I pretty much have equipment related to almost any art related activity. Sewing, crochet, photography, airbrushing, longboard painting, shoe painting, drawing, collaging, candle making, sculpting, pottery, embroidery, etc. It’s obnoxious, and well, expensive. The good news is that if you ever need a very specific item for an art related hobby, there’s like an 87% chance that I got you covered.
