A portion of each Kentucky football helmet will be dedicated to a pair of Wildcats fighting cancer.
“We are going to recognize John Schlarman and Josh Paschal. On our helmets this year we’ll have their initials on a small patch on the back of our helmet,” Mark Stoops revealed to the media this afternoon.
“We also have these wristbands that we gave to the team. It says ‘Schlarman Strong’ and ‘JPon3.’ That’s what the team has been breaking down every time we break.”
Even though Pachal will not be on the field with his teammates, he has been and always will be there in spirit. Schlarman will remain on the sideline while he battles cancer.
Listen to the team break down “JP on 3” in the KY Wildcats TV camp recap.
Stoops also revealed that the team has not yet selected captains for the season. However we did discover today that Pro Football Hall of Famer Dermontti Dawson will serve as an honorary captain in the season-opener.
