UCF QB John Rhys Plumlee had a very busy day on Saturday. The passer, who’s also a member of the baseball team, pulled double duty over the weekend.

Plumlee played a baseball game against conference rival Memphis before suiting up on the football field for the Knights’ annual spring game.

The dual sport athlete’s day got started on the diamond, where his team faced off against the Tigers in the second game of a three-game series.

Plumlee tallied two hits, one of which was a triple, while also driving in a pair of teammates. He continues to have a strong season, hitting .313 with five homers and 10 stolen bases.

Plumlee would then leave that baseball game early with his team holding a 10-3 lead in the 7th inning, going from outfielder to UCF QB in a matter of minutes.

The Knights held their Black and Gold Game Saturday night where he went on to toss a pair of touchdowns.

Plumlee posted about his eventful night on his Twitter page, showing off his triple and two TDs in a video clip.

On the day, he’d throw for 236 yards as he looks to improve upon an impressive first season in Orlando. He led the Knights to nine wins last year, including upsets over No. 20 Cincinnati and No. 16 Tulane.

Fans online were quick to react to the busy day, posting responses on social media. Here’s what the had to say.

One person wrote, “John Rhys Plumlee’s day today was INSANE,” while another commented, “That’s an ATHLETE.”

He’s not the first player we’ve seen suit up for multiple teams, but not many are able to see this kind of success in two sports at the college level. And his night on Saturday couldn’t have gone much better.

When all was said and done, the UCF QB called the day a success.
