Kentucky signee Allen Dailey’s mother diagnosed with stage four breast cancer

Kentucky wide receiver commitment Allen Dailey signed with the Wildcats this morning, officially joining UK’s class of 2018.

The three-star talent caught 80 passes for 1,441 yards and 23 receiving touchdowns as a senior, leading his team to a Class 6A championship in the state of Alabama.

While his school celebrated Dailey’s big day, the receiver signee had his mind in another place.

Marilyn Dailey, Allen’s mother, was recently diagnosed with stage four breast cancer and wasn’t able to attend the signing day celebration as a result.

After making it official, Dailey was asked about his mother’s health and how he’s feeling through all of it.

His answer? No crying allowed.

Afterward, he commented on the video, saying “I love you momma.”

Like his mother’s wishes, he stayed strong and kept away the tears. In fact, he even asked his girlfriend to prom on his special day.

My thoughts and prayers are with Dailey as he struggles through this difficult time, and I know the BBN certainly feels the same way.

If you want to give him a shoutout on Twitter and let him know you’re thinking about him, head on over to his profile here: @Ymm_Allen9
