What is your favorite part of gameday?

Being in the stands and enjoying the game with my close MK friends and playing some great stand tunes. There is a buzzing energy in the stands during gameday which is something that will stick with me for the rest of my life.

What do you like about Marching Knights?

I love the energy we are able to bring to the campus through the music we play, it is a very powerful feeling to provide the heartbeat of the campus. Another great aspect is the community, the Marching Knights represent the best of UCF and the students that are a part of it are a testament to that. I am incredibly proud to be able to participate in this Marching Band.

What are you most excited about for this season?

I am most excited about returning to the field on gameday, running back onto the field and playing Pregame for our first football game back in action. When it comes to our gameday festivities, there are none that compare to running out of the tunnels and out onto the field as the crowd goes wild. It is truly unique experience.
