UK FOOTBALL | "Remember the 22nd" Practice Report

08/19/2016 02:29 PM

The wildcats wrapped up their Friday practice and are now prepping for their second scrimmage on Saturday. The mantra for the WR corps going into their Saturday scrimmage is “Remember the 22nd!”

That is because their second scrimmage in 2015, held on August 22nd, was not up to snuff for Coach Stoops and staff so they dragged the team back out on the field that night for another scrimmage.

Junior Garrett Johnson has not so fond memories of that second scrimmage last season and plans on making sure that history doesn’t repeat itself

For Frankfort senior Ryan Timmons this is will be his last season in the blue and white. Although he has had some up and down moments in the career this summer he and several others stayed on campus to work on timing and to develop a rapport with new quarterback Drew Barker. Timmons thinks the hard work is ready to pay off and is ready to get going

Junior Jeff Badet currently sits atop the depth chart but the upperclassmen knows that there are several guys jockeying to take his spot should he slip up. Badet credits that competition as well as the UK corners with keeping him sharp on the field

First year WR Coach Lamar Thomas is using words like maturity and toughness to describe his group of receivers, which is music to the ears of fans. Coach Thomas expects to have a rotation of 8 guys who will see time on the field this season
