While the UK football team prepares for their season-opener this weekend, a group of future Cats is already taking the field as they put the finishing touches on their high school career. One of those players is Paintsville star linebacker Kash Daniel, who helped carry his team to a 36-0 win over Frankfort Friday night.
Daniel, who plays on both sides of the ball, racked up an impressive 120 yards on 14 carries, with two rushing touchdowns. He also threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to finish the first half.
However, it’s his ability on the defensive side of the ball that led Kentucky to sign him as a linebacker, and he showed why against the Panthers. Daniel finished the game with 16 total tackles and a forced fumble.
Afterward, he talked with cn|2 Sports’ Tony Rawlings about the performance and what he sees in the cards for UK football this season.
