If you missed Spring Practice, or have a craving to watch some UK football, head on down to Commonwealth this evening to watch the first official practice of the season. According to UK Athletics:
Gates for the event will open at 5 p.m. ET (gates 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 will be open). The open practice is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET and will consist of offensive, defensive, and special teams drills. After the completion of practice, UK players and coaches will sign autographs before a fireworks show closes the event.
For fans in Lexington, or close by, this is a great way to get some exposure with the team before the season opener against Louisville on Sunday, September 2nd. Not just fans are looking forward to it, either, as Joker Phillips says that “Fan Day is always one of our favorite days of fall camp because we get to interact with the Big Blue Nation. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Sounds like it should be a fun way to spend an evening for all those who enjoy football. Plus, hey, fireworks.
