One of the most consistent and focused players on the UCF Football team would be Tatum Bethune. The linebacker from Miami (Fla.) Central has been a stalwart for the Knights on and off the gridiron.
Bethune registered 101 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, three quarterback hurries and one pass breakup during the 2021 regular season.
During press conferences this season, Bethune has been straight to the point and honest. That’s exactly how he displayed himself and his comments during Monday’s Gasparilla Bowl press conference.
