UK Football camp opens up Monday. Mark Stoops will have his whole team together for the first time.
The last name Stoops is synonymous with football. Mark's brother Bob is the head coach at Oklahoma. His other brother Mike is the Sooners' Defensive Coordinator. Defense is in the family's DNA. Their Dad coached high school football in Youngstown, OH for about 30 years.
The brothers have reached high levels of college football, and earned high paying jobs doing so, but most football coaches don't make much money. Growing up the Stoops needed to find a second job: painting.
Monday, we'll get our first look at the freshmen. According to the Courier-Journal 3-star offensive lineman Justin Day will not be in camp tomorrow. The Journal reports Day will spend the next two-years in Junior College before joining the 'Cats.
