After the excitement generated from its historic win over Tennessee to end the 2011 season, the University of Kentucky football team continued its momentum with an exciting first day of spring practice on a gorgeous Wednesday morning at the Nutter Training Facility.
“It was great to be back out here, not only for the coaches but for the players too,” UK head coach Joker Phillips said. “We have had a lot of things going on this offseason with our weight program and school and all that stuff. We have been (working out inside, but now we have this great weather and it is a great time to get out here.”
The Wildcats practiced for two hours and 15 minutes in helmets, jerseys and shorts as temperatures moved into the 70s under sunny skies. As one would expect, the first practice focused on fundamentals and introduction of team concepts.
