UCF freshman running back William Stanback delivered one of the most devastating hits of the season on Thursday night in a blowout win over Rutgers. Typically we’re talking about defenders lighting people up when we show you big hits, but Stanback showed off his incredible strength in the second quarter when he destroyed Scarlet Knights defensive back Anthony Cioffi.
Stanback caught a pass in the flat from UCF quarterback Blake Bortles and turned up the sideline. Unfortunately for Cioffo, who tried to break down and make the open-field tackle, Stanback picked up a head of steam and literally ran through his fellow freshman.
It’s not the first time we have seen an offensive player truck a defender, but Stanback barely even broke stride. He’s obviously part of the reason UCF has itself in position for the programs first BCS Bowl appearance.
