From Football to Art

Aaron Evans was the UCF offensive lineman from 2013-2017. He signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent, and when that didn't work out, he signed with the Apollos in the AAF.

Now that the Alliance is no more, Aaron has his focus on something other than football.

Art.

UCF saw the artwork Aaron was putting out there and they were so impressed, that they brought him on as an official artist of the athletic program to paint murals at Spectrum Stadium. As you'd expect, it was a big deal for him, "It's a pretty surreal experience to say the least. I was painting those murals and I was like laughing and crying. I was tearing up. I was like this is unreal, I can't believe it. In any other context this would be illegal, vandalizing their wall and now it's being celebrated. It's such an honor. I'm so thankful."

Here's the first mural up at UCF.
