Video: Jose rises to the top

Months of hard work paid off for Jose Jose on Monday when the UCF defensive tackle learned his play in camp warranted a bump up to the first team defense.

It's been a long and arduous process for Jose, who's battled adversity as well as himself since signing with the Knights two years ago.

His biggest nemesis has been his weight: Jose said he came in last year a shade under 400 pounds and is now proud to say he weighs in at a much leaner 327.

Speaking with the reporters for the first time this camp, Jose says he knows he'll have to continue to fight to hold on to a starting job, but at the same time is proud of his progress knowing the obstacles he's overcome.
