It didn’t take Kentucky coach Joker Phillips to find a way to make the most of his own Big Blue fish story after he recently had the incoming freshmen football players over to his house and some went fishing in a pond out back.
“You saw one of the other freshmen in the boat paddling so he could have his hands free. You saw Zack Blaylock — he was the one who snagged it — and saw his brother (Daron Blaylock), one guy holding the other one so he could try to hold on and not fall in the pond. That right there showed me that these guys really like each other, they like working together.”
Good story. But was it true.
ABSOLUTELY because this picture Phillips took on his cell phone shows Zack Blaylock with his trophy fish — and the start of freshman class teamwork.
