On the day before the Herd takes on UCF in the Gasparilla Bowl, former Herd quarterback Byron Leftwich met with the team.

Leftwich is now the offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Herd used their indoor practice facility Sunday before Leftwich spoke to them about the support and fan base cheering them to victory.
