HONORING JAVAN: A moment of silence was held for the late Daytona Beach Thunder player Javan Camon before the game today. Camon was killed two weeks ago while playing in a game for the Thunder. During the moment of silence, many photos of Camon playing were shown on a slide show.
LOCAL LEGEND: At halftime, another former UCF Golden Knight was honored with former receiver Sean Beckton coming into the arena. Orlando Predators receiver Jimmy Fryzel, Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, and NFL receiver Doug Gabriel were cited as players who performed at UCF under Beckton's tutelage. In the 1990 I-AA playoffs, Beckton had his biggest game at UCF, catching two touchdown passes and throwing another one on a 76 yard touchdown pass to Shawn Jefferson, who would later go on to star with the New England Patriots.
HOME COOKING: Brandon Sumner was playing against a team from his hometown of Daytona Beach where he played high school football at Mainland High School. The Osceola Ghostriders have nine former UCF Golden Knights on their roster. Including standouts Stanford Rhule, Sumner, and Luther Huggins, all former players at UCF earlier in this decade.
UNO, DEUCE: The Ghostriders posted their second UNO of the season with a fourth-quarter end zone tackle on a kickoff return.
STYLE: Osceola's score of 234 style points from the media committe was the highest in five WIFL games this season.
MORE MVP FOR MORELAND: Turmarian Moreland earned his second Defensive Game MVP of the season. All the other MVPs had a Daytona Beach connection -- Sumner (Mainland HS), Myqual Spann (Thunder 2006) and Lamont Finnie (Bethune-Cookman)
