Who is Eric Lopez? The Insider?

I Wanted to take this time to introduce myself and who I am, my name is Eric Lopez and I am a UCF Alum who has covered UCF Athletics since I was a student and have also covered the Orlando Magic since 2005. I began covering UCF Football as a student broadcaster for WKNT Knightcast in 2005 being part of student broadcasts of UCF Football, Basketball, and Baseball. I am currently the play by play voice of UCF Softball on UCFAthletics.com, a position I have held since 2007 highlighted by broadcasting UCF’s 2008 C-USA Championship win in Conference Tournament as well as broadcasting 2 NCAA Softball Tournament Regionals in 2008 and 2010.

I joined UCFSports.com in summer of 2009 and have covered all UCF Athletics including Football, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Mens and Women’s Soccer.  I covered UCF Football at C-USA Championship Games they got to host in 2005 and 2007 as well as St Petersburg Bowl. During this time I also covered the Orlando Magic since 2005, I covered the Magic for Hoopsworld.com shooting and editing video as well as freelance work for OrlandoSportsCentral.com and LSUSports.net as well as covered the Magic for ESPN Radio 1420am in St Augustine doing a weekly NBA Segment on the CB Sports Show. I also covered the Champs Sports and Capital One Bowl for ESPN Radio 1420am.

My goal as an insider is to bring a different content in coverage of UCF Football as well as Orlando Magic with the goal of bringing exclusive content and interviews you won’t find on mainstream media and also bring the perspective of what’s happening with your favorite players and teams.
