Vaught’s note: Scott Suder is a huge University of Kentucky basketball fan and during UK’s post-championship celebration he’s taken his young daughter, Sydney, to meet a number of the Cats. Now he’s even introduced her to the Untouchables, UK’s 1996 championship team. Enjoy his post and pictures of his lovely daughter with the Cats.
By SCOTT SUDER
Sydney Suder, one of UK’s littlest fans, had the opportunity to meet with six of the former players of the 1996 “The Untouchables” men’s basketball team. Walter McCarty held our seven month old and sang to her. Tony Delk talked about his own children as he took a picture with Sydney. She was passed down the line to Ron Mercer, Anthony Epps, Antoine Walker, and Derek Anderson. She was on the front page of the sports section of the Herald Leader the next morning and on Kentucky.com.
Sydney has been fortunate to have pictures taken with Darius Miller and Anthony Davis. I am a huge UK fan and attend most autograph sessions whenever possible. Sydney’s mother, Tigre Suder, loves pictures and feels Sydney will appreciate them when she gets older. Autographs are keepsakes and may be worth money, but a picture is a memory frozen in time.
The goal is to make a UK book for Sydney of all of her pictures with the players she meets. We hope to share our love for basketball and UK with Sydney. Dad can’t wait until she is old enough to start attending the basketball camps, and maybe one day play for UK.
