Kash Daniel’s first post-Kentucky football venture is in the world of bass fishing. Friday evening he debuted a new YouTube series, “Off SZN with Kash Daniel.” The Paintsville native uses the platform to touch on a variety of topics, both serious and light-hearted, while sharing a few tips on how to reel in the big boys.
In the first episode Kash is joined by someone he shared a meeting room with at UK, linebacker Jamin Davis. For years Kash showed the Georgia native the ropes on the football field. Now he’s doing the same near a fishing hole.
As the heir apparent to Daniel at middle linebacker, expectations are high for the relatively unknown No. 44. Kash helps peel back the curtain by asking Davis what it was like to grow up in a military family and by sharing stories from the locker room. Davis can thank Kash for turning him into a Chris Stapleton and Tyler Childers fan. Kash believes big things are coming for Davis this fall.
“I was probably the least athletic dude in that linebacker room,” Jamin laughed as Kash continued. “I knew what I made up for in my athleticism, I could get dudes lined up in the right place and make sure they know what their job is. I know, I know you’re going to do the same thing. I’m so excited to watch you play.”
“You already know what’s coming,” Davis replied.
In between the laughs and football talk, Davis and Daniel had an honest and open conversation about race. The only thing interrupting the discussion were bites from bass. Watch all of the action unfold.
The dynamic duo hauled in quite a few big ones. Davis was proud at the end of the day. “Mom, if you see this, your boy is a fisher now.”
