Sophomore defensive backs Daron and Zach Blaylock made about a one-hour trip to a Gainesville, Ga., hospital to see injured UK teammate Ashely Lowery. He was hurt in an early Saturday morning traffic accident near his hometown of Cleveland, Ga., when he lost control of his car, it flipped several times and he was ejected. Lowery was scheduled to be moved out of intensive care Wednesday night.
“People are flocking to the hospital to see him,” said John Woods, the Blaylock twins’ stepfather. “They had been calling his cell phone and not getting an answer. Finally (UK assistant) coach (Bradley Dale) Peveto called and talked to them and we got his mom’s cell phone number. They went and spent time with him in ICU. They said he could hardly walk, his neck was stiff and he had cuts all over him. But he sat up and talked to them.
“Things are looking better. I don’t know when he will be ready to play football, but he’s lucky to be alive. But he’s going to make it. They said he hopes to be out of the hospital Thursday or Friday. He was happy to see them. They are going to the beach for a couple of days and he told them, ‘I wish you could take me with you.’ I think he is getting cabin fever and climbing the walls just a bit.”
Woods said his sons had told him often that Lowery “is just a great kid” that everyone likes.
