Still more to write


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – How will Alex Poythress be remembered by Solid Blue fans?  What will his legacy be in Lexington?

He’s had his share of ups and downs.  It’s been a roller coaster of emotions no doubt.  Though, you’d never know it looking at Alex.  Poythress never really showed much emotion one way or the other…usually staying even keel and never getting too up, or too down, on himself.
