ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -A review of the University of Central Florida's football training program, ordered after a player died and another collapsed last year, found conditioning activities rigorous ``but within the range normal to other Division I football programs.''
The review was done by an attorney hired by the university.
The report released Friday recommends better communication between team physicians and coaches and said the school should consider hiring an extra athletic trainer for football.
UCF President John Hitt ordered the review after the death of receiver Ereck Plancher last spring and the collapse of running back Brandon Davis in December.
Plancher died after taking part in ``mat drills'' during an offseason conditioning workout last March on the UCF campus.
