Like his program, he is young and improving. Like his program, he has a little bit of style.
In a way, McKenzie Milton is much like the Central Florida Knights, who have earned a second look this season. Milton, an 18-year-old freshman, is suddenly the fresh new face on campus, a quarterback who has led UCF from the ranks of the winless to a team that is 4-3 with bowl aspirations.
Saturday night, against UConn, Milton threw for 317 yards and three touchdowns in a victory. For his efforts, Milton is the Sunshine State Player of the Week.
Other players considered for the award were Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya, who threw for 323 yards in the team’s loss to Virginia Tech and Alex McGough, who threw for 281 yards and three scores in a loss to Louisiana Tech.
The Sunshine State award is a weekly honor given out by the SaintPetersblog.
