Director, Wheels Club


Manny Messeguer, who has missed only a few games in UCF football's history, has been a staple around the Knights program and currently serves as the director of the wheels club.

Messeguer, who has met every UCF president, athletics director and football coach, began his association with the university in 1968 after delivering a courtesy vehicle to Dr. Millican from Mr. Heintzelman. As a proud resident of Orlando, Messeguer quickly became a fan of UCF and the Knights.

In 1982, he became a donor leader and has served the program in numerous capacities, including as a radio network sideline reporter and a personal pilot for former head coach Gene McDowell.

Prior to formally joining the UCF program in February of 2008, Messeguer spent 18 years as general manager and vice president of Tropical Ford Inc., turning the dealership from a 90-unit a month operation into a 500 plus-unit a month operation, one of the largest in Orlando.

Messeguer served in the United States Air Force, where he was taught to be a pilot during the Vietnam era and remains instrument rated as a private pilot.

He is originally a native of Miami and first moved to Orlando when stationed at McCoy Air Force Base. He lives with his wife Madalana. They have three children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild.
