How “Taco Meat” Collins told his Dad he was Awarded a Scholarship

UK Athletics

Last week Will Tom Collins, the senior fullback better known as Taco Meat, was awarded a scholarship for his final season along with Tanner Fink and Dylan Greenberg.

Often times coaches award scholarships in elaborate fashion, surprising the players in front of the entire team.  That was not the case when these three received their scholarships.  It was also not the case when Taco Meat told his dad.

His mother drove his unknowing father to Lexington before he casually dropped the news.

“I always kind of wanted big sleeve tattoos.  But tattoos cost a lot of money so I have never got ’em, but now that I’m on scholarship I can get a sleeved tattoo.”

    That’s what makes college athletics so great. There are so many great stories.

    Sleeve tattoos? Really? That’s what you are going to spend the extra money on?
