Former Central Florida Knights wide receiver Anthony Davis testified in Ereck Plancher's wrongful death trial Tuesday, making some very strong accusations about UCF coach George O'Leary. The Orlando Sentinel's Iliana Limón has a five-page report on the latest from the trial, none of which presents O'Leary as having responded properly.
In detail, Davis described the final workout of Plancher's life, saying O'Leary demanded water and trainers be removed from the field beforehand. He also said he could tell Plancher was in distress, claiming the wide receiver collapsed at one point -- while coaches forced teammates to stop trying to help him back up.
UConn professor and athletic trainer Douglas Casa testified on UCF's apparent capability for providing care for athletes with sickle cell, finding UCF to be unprepared and understaffed.
According to the report, UCFAA lawyer Dan Shapiro has repeatedly asked Plancher family witnesses about their compensation for appearing as witnesses, while associate Kevin Taylor worked to point out inconsistencies between Davis' June 21 testimony and his April 18 sworn statement.
