It’s a big day for Kentucky’s head ball coach.
Today Mark Stoops turns 53-years-old. Entering his eighth season as the man in charge of the Wildcats’ football program, the coronavirus has caused him to change his birthday plans. Thanks to social distancing, he cannot celebrate by crowd-surfing with his team.

He has received well wishes from his fellow coaches and players who are tipping their cap to one of Youngstown’s finest.
