The best tight end in UK history finally reached the pinnacle of UK Athletics. Jacob Tamme was named to the 2018 UK Hall of Fame Class joining Anthony Davis, women’s basketball star Victoria Dunlap, golfer Russ Cochran, SEC tennis champion Eric Quigley and his coach, Dennis Emery. The most talented and prestigious class (in my opinion) will be inducted during Hall of Fame Weekend, September 21-22, the weekend of the home football game vs. Mississippi State.
That should be a hoot.
UK Football released a highlight video of Tamme that you’ll want to watch. The Kentuckian started as a walk-on at UK but finished with an jaw-dropping 133 receptions, 1417 yards and 11 touchdowns. As an NFL player Tamme finished with 259 catches, 2,570 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Let’s hope C.J. Conrad can do the damn thing next year.
