Three University of Central Florida football players testified coach George O'Leary never ordered water and athletic trainers be removed from Ereck Plancher's final workout.

Plancher, a former Lely High School football star, collapsed and died following offseason conditioning drills at the UCF football complex on March 18, 2008.

Former UCF captain Rocky Ross and current UCF running back Ronnie Weaver stated during the 12th day of the Plancher wrongful death trial water was available at all times during the workout.
