Ereck Plancher Trial: George O'Leary Denied Water During Workout, According To Additional Testimony

The Ereck Plancher trial continued on Friday with more revelations from a former Central Florida Knights football player that coach George O'Leary conducted practice under harsh conditions on the day Plancher collapsed and died. Former captain and wide receiver Brian Watters testified on Friday that O'Leary had removed water during the workout in which Plancher collapsed on March 18, 2008.

This came just a day after O'Leary denied the claims made by former player Anthony Davis on the lack of water during the practice. O'Leary insisted that he knew of Plancher's sickle cell trait condition, but was unaware of his troubles during the workout until it concluded.

Additional testimony, this from Dr. Randy Eichner, claimed that Plancher was treated improperly by trainer Robert Jackson, who admitted while on the stand that he did not learn of Plancher's condition until he found it in the media.

The jury will have an interesting time deciding this case. Both sides in this trial continue to counter testimony each day to discredit each other,
