Jon Hood celebrating his 23rd birthday by touring middle schools

@PPSsportsMGMT

Today is Jon Hood’s birthday and he is spending it touring schools in Madisonville talking to students and signing things. Jon’s birthday comes one day after Jarrod Polson’s, Kentucky’s only other senior from last season.

So take a second, again, to throw out some Happy Birthday wishes today. Jon has been a great ambassador for the program and he played with like 64 NBA players during his time in Lexington.

Happy Birthday, Hoody.

    Before this year I didnt think very highly of Jon Hood. His leadership in the locker room and the stuff hes done around the state this year has completely changed my opinion. Hoods a class act in my book.

    I was at a school today that Jon Hood spoke to the kids he did a really good job all the kids were excited to see him. A kid that was a louisville fan was saying he was not any good and asked me why it was only U.K. players doing the tours and I explained to them most of the U.L. players are already in jail.

    As a Union Co. grad I wish Jon a happy birthday and the best of luck as he enters the next phase of his life. Jon has been a great ambassador for the program and the western part of the state. Job well done Jon and God’s speed.
