The UVa football team held its annual Meet the Team Day Thursday night at Scott Stadium.

Hundreds of fans got autographs and pictures taken with the team.

Coach Bronco Mendenhall signed autographs too.

Earlier on Thursday, Mendenhall talked about his prized recruit, freshman Jowon Briggs.

Briggs is a highly touted 4-star defensive lineman from Cincinnati.     Briggs was ranked as one of the top-100 best players for the 2019 class and Mendenhall says Briggs shows it on the field, but also shows modesty.

"He has other interests but he is sure passionate about football and he does it at a really high level," says Mendenhall.  "There's no stardom to him. The star rankings, he never even acknowledged it at the beginning. He's come in and measured up to what we had hoped and through six practices has emerged and is running with our ones as of today. That doesn't mean it will hold but as of today."
