There’s a lot of things to like about Kentucky senior running back JoJo Kemp from his personality to his aggressive play to his confidence in himself and his team.

But did you know he has another talent that teammates also real like — cooking.

“I do like cooking. That just came about growing up. I am the oldest with a little brother and sister,” said Kemp. “My step-dad was a good cook and so were my mom and grandmother.

There’s not a Kentucky football player I have enjoyed being around more in recent years than JoJo Kemp.

It started the first time I talked to him on the phone when I learned UK was recruiting the Florida running back. It has continued during his time at UK.

He’s brash, but honest. He’s caring. He’s outgoing. He gives an honest answer to any question.

I know he’s been frustrated at times the last two years that he has not got the ball more. Yet he has never publicly complained or pouted.
