Garrett Johnson not only loves playing Florida because he is from there, but also loves the excitement of playing in The Swamp.
“Always that game. That’s just a game to look forward to,” Johnson said. “You know, for everybody, for everybody really just looking forward to that game. It’s just always big, a lot of excitement built around that game.”
“And I guess, you know, just going down there against their fans and all that. That just kind of adds a little hype, excitement and everything too,” Johnson said.
The last time Kentucky played at Florida, Johnson caught six passes for 154 years and two touchdowns. Johnson was the reason Kentucky kept in striking distance of ending Florida’s 28-game winning streak.
Johnson loves going back home to Florida and calls this game a free trip home. Johnson had to request a large amount of tickets to accommodate all of his family and friends coming to the game.
“I’m actually going to let my mom handle that. So she’s back at home getting all those tickets and everything together. Yeah she told me she totaled it up, already 66. So I still gotta just get a couple on my part, but I’m glad to see the family and everybody,” Johnson said.
