UK Football: Senior Offensive Tackle Cole Mosier Suffers Torn ACL

08/14/2017 03:48 PM

Senior offensive tackle Cole Mosier suffered a torn ACL during Kentucky football’s scrimmage on Saturday. The injury ends Mosier’s career at Kentucky.

“We’re extremely disappointed about Cole’s injury,” Coach Mark Stoops said. “He has been with us all five seasons we’ve been at Kentucky. He helped set the example of hard work that is the theme of this program, as he came in as a walk-on and earned a scholarship. We know Cole will continue to support his teammates this season and we wish him the best in his recovery and in the future.”

Mosier started in ten games for Kentucky in 2016. The Walton, Kentucky native played in 32 career games at Kentucky. Mosier walked on to Kentucky from Walton-Verona High School in 2013. He earned a full scholarship as a redshirt sophomore.

“Tearing my ACL was a big blow and it’s unfortunate because I wanted to finish my career here at UK with my teammates,” Mosier said. “However, I’m going to have surgery on Thursday and I plan to rehab my knee in order to participate in UK’s Pro Day in March. I want to thank Coach Stoops and Coach Schlarman for everything they’ve done for me. I also want to thank the Big Blue Nation for their support. Coming here as a walk-on and then earning a scholarship was a dream come true. I’m going to continue being around the team to cheer them on and help the team as much as I can.”
