After several long days of camp, Kentucky head football coach Joker Phillips treated his team to a pool party on Tuesday.
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Kentucky football team had three practices in a 26-hour period over Monday and Tuesday, with video study and meetings wrapped around the on-field work. So, instead of having lunch on campus after the Tuesday morning practice, the Wildcats had lunch and some fun at a local swimming pool.
The Wildcats practiced Monday morning in full pads, followed by workouts in helmets and shoulder pads Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Coach Joker Phillips continues to feel good about his team’s overall work ethic.
“With three practices in that period of time, they (the players) worked to push themselves through it,” Phillips said Tuesday. “We had an emphasis on passing (in Tuesday’s practice), with a lot of 7-on-7 and some work on blitzing.”
Off the field and inside the locker room, Phillips continues to be pleased with the group he has mentally, saying the team leaders have done a great job creating a team environment.
“We have a great locker room right now, I love this locker room,” Phillips said. “We have guys doing the things the right way and especially the guys at the top are leading the young guys and teaching them how we do things. We need all 105 of these players to be with us when we play Sept. 2.”
