Brian Adams calls it quits

Kentucky head football coach Joker Phillips says in a statement today that Brian Adams, the two-sport star for the football and baseball teams has called it quits on the gridiron.

Adams was a wide receiver for the football team and is currently an outfielder for the baseball team, but has recently focused more on his development on the diamond. It has been speculated that this decision might come, especially after he opted out of spring football practice this year.

He thanked Joker Phillips and baseball coach Gary Henderson in a statement, saying, “It has been a tremendous honor to play two sports here at Kentucky.”

Adams was drafted in the 45th round by the Cincinnati Reds out of high school, and will be eligible for the MLB draft again this June where he is projected to be selected and assigned to a minor league team. He was named the “best athlete” in the SEC prior to the start of the baseball season.

    First of all, bravo, #4.

    Secondly, Kentucky football is in for a historically deplorable season. I am planning distractions already. Probably going to stick with beer.

    “He was named the “best athlete” in the SEC prior to the start of the baseball season…” by his parents and grandma.

    Sorry Stuart, real men don’t play baseball or have tools as part of their names.
