WATCH: New Defensive Line Coach Anwar Stewart Mic’d Up at Spring Practice

Before the coronavirus halted all football activities on the University of Kentucky’s campus, the fine folks at KyWildcatsTV threw a microphone on Anwar Stewart.

The former Wildcat made his triumphant return to Lexington this spring. As you can see in the footage, even though he’s technically new, he’s quite familiar with his defensive linemen. After all, he did serve as the position group’s graduate assistant in 2017 and 2018.

One thing that immediately jumped out: Stewart was coaching up his young players while they were stretching. He stayed in Octavious Oxendine’s ear, providing positive reinforcement before the early enrollee was thrown into the fire. Stewart harped on the nitty-gritty details for almost the entirety of the three-minute video.

Today UK also unveiled a little TBT in honor of Stewart, flashing old highlights while the former Cat broke down his iconic scoop and score to help Kentucky upset Alabama in 1997.

    You can tell he wants to be here and isn’t afraid of anybody. Can’t wait to see that dline and he’s got jokes, talking smack to the big blue wall.
