The lessons JoJo Kemp learned on the field are paying dividends in his new field.
The former Kentucky running back that carried the Wildcats to Mark Stoops’ first signature victory, a come from behind upset of South Carolina, is now helping others get back into the game. A medical equipment specialist, it’s not exactly the same as reading holes, but the discipline instilled in him at UK has made him successful at his next stop
“Man, football helped out a ton,” Kemp told KSR. “That’s what I tell all my athletes. I don’t care if it’s football, basketball, hockey, no matter what, being a part of a team sport, kids need that in life because it teaches you things that other places can’t: discipline, teamwork, holding yourself accountable, time management.”
Jojo is now working with another former Wildcat too, Dr. David Hamilton. Bradley McKee caught up with the dynamic duo that is helping people across Central Kentucky.
