Sometimes the best Kentucky stories I do are about what an athlete does off the court or field. I like telling behind the scenes story.

That’s why I liked writing about Keely Potts finding a way to help her boyfriend, UK junior Derek Willis, regain his confidence during the basketball season.

It’s my most recent story on lex18.com and one I hope you will check out and enjoy. I will have more with Keely on her insights into Willis, who could be a huge key for UK next season, coming up soon.


Also coming up Thursday at 7:30 a.m. on WPBK-FM (102.9) and wpbkfm.com myself and Tim Estes will be talking with UK football signee Landon Young of Lafayette.

It will be a chance to catch up with Young on his track season and also share his insights on UK’s spring practice before Saturday’s Blue-White Game since he has been at practice so often this month.

  1. What a great story, Larry. This is what I love best about you – reporting beyond the statistics and looking at the heart and soul of the student athlete.
