LEXINGTON, KY (WTVQ)- He’s not Deion Sanders or Bo Jackson, but Kash Daniel is looking to become a two-sport star this spring. The University of Kentucky Linebacker is pursuing a dream of his to fish competitively for UK.
Daniel received permission from Head Coach Mark Stoops to spend some of his off-time competing in fishing tournaments. Football comes first, but Daniel says he plans to compete in a tournament in March, as well as a few in May after spring football.
There are some NCAA details to work out, as UK figures out if he will be able to wear the sponsored gear his other angling teammates wear. If it’s an issues, Daniel says he’d be OK fishing in a UK sweatshirt, like he normally does.
