COLLIER COUNTY - Ereck Plancher's family was awarded $10-million in a wrongful death suit against the University of Central Florida's Athletic Association after he died during a practice. Now, the school is appealing that decision.

In the appeal, filed in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeal, the University of Central Florida claims they didn't get a fair trial.

The Plancher family's attorney, Steve Yerrid, calls the school's athletic association a "renegade organization" that didn't care about Ereck Plancher's well being.
