“It’s a combination of everything.”


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The football Cats are focusing on making explosive plays this spring.

There were lots of dropped balls again in 2017.

That often kept the Cats from making the big play.

There’s another change at the receiver coaching spot.

The hope is that, plus an across-the-board effort leads to success on the field.

It’s not on just one person or position in this process.

Dorian Baker was back out on the field running routes Tuesday.

He’s taking things slow.

There’s a reason he’s out for spring ball letting his leg heal fully before the fall.

While he’s mentally doing what he can to improve, he’s also helping his team in other ways.

Hear from offensive coordinator Eddie Gran and Baker in the video.
