Because he’s not busy enough, Matt Jones was a guest on UK Volleyball Coach Craig Skinner’s podcast, “Above the Net,” last week. Among the topics Matt, Skinner, and volleyball public address announcer Don Hart discussed was how KSR got started. It’s a story you’ve probably heard many times before, but on Matt’s 40th birthday, deserves some of your time.
Matt describes the inspiration he draws from his mother, Karen Greene Blondell, what it’s been like to watch KSR grow over the years, and what’s next. Kudos to Skinner and Hart for their thoughtful questions and being brave enough to bring up the p-word: politics.
Listen below. Matt comes on around the 9-minute mark.
Coach Skinner’s squad had a rough start to the season, going 0-3 last weekend in the USC Tournament, but they’ll look to get back on track Friday in the Bluegrass Battle at Memorial Coliseum. To purchase tickets, click here.
