Kentucky fan invited on field after Florida win tells KSR the story


@UKFootball

Beatty London went to Gainesville last weekend to cheer the Cats on for his birthday; little did he know he’d leave as the program’s good luck charm after they snapped the 31-year losing streak.

As you’ve heard by now, London, a former Kentucky soccer player, cheered Kentucky on so hard in the Swamp that the team invited him onto the field and into the locker room to celebrate. Today, London came to KSR’s remote at Rock House Brewing to tell the story, and it’s a great one.

“At about three minutes left, it was funny, a Florida fan looked at me and another Kentucky fan and said, ‘Are you going to rush the field?’ I was like, ‘I’d love to, but there’s a cop standing right there.’ Then a guy from the program, I believe his name is Chase, handed me Vince Marrow’s field pass. I was like, are you kidding me? So I had to fight my way through all the Florida zombies leaving the game, fight my way to the right gate and they let me on the field. You all saw the end of the game. It was beautiful.”

Once on the field, he ended up on the SEC Network broadcast:

Earlier this week, Kentucky invited Beatty to practice, a very cool gesture:

“To see these players’ eyes, they really believe,” London said. “This team is special. I don’t care what happens the rest of the season, but this team is special. You can just feel the energy. And when Coach [Stoops] was dancing with them, it was awesome. It was a fan’s dream.”

Beatty was such a star on today’s show that Matt made him Hey Kentucky’s UK Football correspondent, a no-brainer. Listen to his appearance below:

    PLEASE make a spot for Baity on the KSR football podcast. That guy was great on the radio and his passion for UK football is contagious

      Ha, just realized his name is Beatty*. I was spelling it like the player in my head until I reread the story

    One thing I like about the football staff is this story just confirms that they get it. They know how to reward the fans that are true to the program and that is an awesome story that shows that. Stoops has done a great job at building the program up with a modern approach and its exciting right now after all the years cheering for the CATS, this is just icing on the cake. Its about enjoying the process even if you know it could be better, time says that it has gotten better if you look at the recruiting and the win column. Its a hard process, but none the less trusting it has already started to pay off!

    Beatty may need to be a future guest co-host on KSR. Has a great personality and sounds great over the airwaves!
