JoJo Kemp talks bowl eligibility, changing culture and his letterman jacket


Kentucky’s JoJo Kemp sat down with the SEC Network’s Laura Rutledge to talk about his team’s bowl eligibility and all the hard work it took to get there. The senior running back said it was important for him and his teammates to “change the culture” of the program when they arrived, and they feel they have done that by clinching a bowl spot for the first time since 2010.

Before Rutledge let Kemp go, she asked him about his nice UK letterman jacket he wore for the SEC Now interview. He said he put it in his closet when he first got it and told himself he couldn’t bring it out until Kentucky made a bowl game, and “it’s a little windy out.”

Good stuff from one of the fan favorites:

  1. I see you Power K!

    JoJo, if you read this, I’ll never forget you putting the team on your back against SC and leading us to that win. I’ll also never forget seeing the assistant coach LITERALLY putting you on HIS back (okay, it was really his shoulder) and carrying you off the field because you were so exhausted. I appreciate that you seem to be always smiling just like Dominique Hawkins.

    Good luck and God bless in whatever your future endeavors are young man!!! You are a class act.
