On Thursday the Kentucky Football players walked out of practice as a symbolic, defiant gesture against racial injustice and police brutality.
Mark Stoops gave the players 100 percent of his support. He stood by their side outside of the Joe Craft Football Training Facility, but he remained silent until after Josh Paschal and Luke Fortner spoke with the media to explain how they reached this decision why they took that course of action. Later Thursday night he shared on Twitter that he’s proud they took a stand to improve their community.
They are knowledgeable and courageous, with a passion to make an impact. They have a commitment to being leaders of character as players, students and citizens.
