Ashely Lowery Cleared to Play Football


A family friend of UK Safety Ashely Lowery tweeted today that Lowery has been cleared by UK to resume practicing with the team. Doug Stutsman says that the decision came today and he will begin workouts tomorrow. This is great news for UK football, but also more importantly, for Ashely, who suffered a horrific car crash Derby weekend in Georgia. When pictures of the crash came out, the worst was expected, but his recovery has been substantial and now he is ready to move forward at UK. We all hope he can produce on the field, but more importantly, he has recovered off the field and for that we at KSR are all grateful and thankful.

    Super pumped that he is going to fully recover. Can’t wait to cheer him on this season. He’ll have a great testimony some day.

    With the many senseless tragedies we witness or read about every day, Ashely’s story is one of the miracles that rarely makes the news. But the BBN knows, and appreciates. You go, Ashely!

    God bless him, that’s amazing. What a strong willed young man.

    Lol number 8. In all seriousness though, it is a true miracle that this young man is still alive, let alone having the opportunity to continue his football career. Good luck Ashely Lowery and God bless you!

    I echo the sentiments of the other posters! It’s great to have Ashley back on the field! After seeing a picture of the vehicle he was driving, it’s amazing the young man is alive, let alone playing football again. I never dreamed he’d be back so soon!

    Good luck to Ashley this year! What a great story!
