The final workout of Ereck Plancher
UCF football player Ereck Plancher, a 19-year-old freshman receiver from Naples, collapsed after an offseason workout supervised by Knights Coach George O'Leary and his staff on March 18. He was transported to a nearby hospital and died about an hour later. The following summary of Plancher's final workout was compiled from interviews with multiple UCF officials, public documents and the accounts of four UCF football players who spoke to the Sentinel on condition of anonymity because they said they feared retribution from UCF coaches.
