Orlando Predators Land UCF's McCray Brothers
ORLANDO - November 17, 2015 - The Orlando Predators added two rookie players to its offensive line, agreeing to terms with former University of Central Florida starters and identical twin brothers Jordan and Justin McCray.
The blocking tandem both served as team captains in their final season with the Knights and will be reunited on the gridiron for the first time since UCF came away with a victory in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl.
"Jordan and Justin are powerful linemen who bring leadership qualities to the team having been captains at UCF," said Head Coach Rob Keefe. "Individually, they are motivated players who strive to get better and play at an elite level. Together, they compete and push each other to be the best they can be. That dynamic will undoubtedly lead to success."
Jordan McCray (6-3, 315, Central Florida) played in 44 contests with 28 starts during his career at UCF. He started all 13 games at left guard during his senior season, garnering First Team All-American Conference honors. Following his career with the Knights, Jordan signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2014, where he spent part of the year on the team's practice squad before joining the Minnesota Vikings. He later signed with the Carolina Panthers for training camp in 2015.
Justin McCray (6-3, 315, Central Florida) played in 45 games with 32 starts for the Knights, seeing action at both right tackle and right guard. As a senior in 2013, he earned First Team All-American Athletic Conference accolades and was selected as UCF's Outstanding Offensive Lineman during the team's postseason awards banquet. Following his college career, Justin signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent in 2014, where he spent a year on the practice squad before re-signing for training camp in 2015.
The duo attended Southridge High School in Miami, where they led the school to an undefeated regular season in 2009. They were both named to the Miami Herald All-Dade County team after providing outstanding protection, as neither player allowed a single sack during his senior season.
