Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer, and for most college kids (especially Jon Hood) it means time to kick the feet up and hit the lake. UK student-athletes aren’t most college kids.
Kentucky football players Bud Dupree, Braylon Heard and Landon Foster braved a 13-hour flight to Ethiopia, where they will spend the next week on a mission trip. The trip has become a tradition over the last few years for UK student-athletes that has opened the eyes and changed the lives of many, including Jarrod Polson, Danny Trevathan and Avery Williamson.
The trio went sight-seeing in Washington DC before crossing the pond where they will encounter things you and I cannot imagine.
Thanks guys for fighting the good fight that only a few can do.
