McDuffie ranked second in the nation in 2010 averaging 32.19 yards per return, including two touchdowns. The Edgewater High School graduate returned a kickoff back 93 yards for a touchdown against NC State on Sept. 11 and, with the Knights looking for an early spark on the road, ran back the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown against Tulane on Nov. 20 at the Louisiana Superdome. With three career kickoff return touchdowns, the speedy rising junior stands just one shy of the UCF career record of four.
Known more for his track prowess in high school, in two short years McDuffie has morphed into a second-team All-American for the Knights on the gridiron to earn this recognition today. Behind McDuffie, UCF led the nation in kickoff returns last year averaging 27.78 yards. That field position was crucial as the Knights won a school-record 11 games, including the Conference USA championship and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl where UCF toppled Georgia. UCF finished the season ranked an all-time best No. 20 in the USA Today coaches poll and No. 21 in the AP poll.
