Tonight is Senior night for the football Wildcats and hopefully you are reading this from the parking lot of Commonwealth Stadium after attending the Cat Walk and waiting to go into the stadium to cheer on the Cats. It means a lot to these players that the fans stand behind them, not only the seniors but underclassmen and recruits take notice of fan support or the lack there of. Several of these players have made huge contributions to Wildcat football, here are some memorable moments from the Class of 2013.
WR La’Rod King – As a true freshman La Rod had one of the highlights of the season on a one-handed catch and run for a touchdown in the upset of Georgia in Athens.
QB Morgan Newton – Morgan was supposed to redshirt as a freshman but an injury to starter Mike Hartline forced him onto the field. In what was thought to be a lost season, Newton led the Wildcats to several upset wins and a bowl game.
WR EJ Fields – EJ hasn’t played a lot of snaps in his UK career due to injuries and confidence issues, but he showed up on the biggest stage as a junior, notching 7 catches for 57 yards and a touchdown against Louisville.
