Just in case you didn’t see it, I wanted to share this comment that Walt Whitlow, the father of UK sophomore quarterback Jalen Whitlow, left on the site Tuesday after reading the post by Ashley Scoby about his son as well as the comments from many of you.
Here’s what he posted:
“As a father who is hours away (Jalen’s father), I read the blogs sometimes to help keep up with what’s going on in Lexington … I hear some good thing and things not so good but what I saw Saturday night I can say that we are excited to be a part of the Wildcat nation. As for those positive comments that I read our family really thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.”
How great is that?
The Whitlows should be excited about the fan support at the Blue-White Game and how their son ran Neal Brown’s offense. But for a father to take time to thank those hear for saying positive things about his son helps show exactly why Jalen Whitlow is such a delightful young man to be around.
I don’t know who will win the UK quarterback starting position, but I know Brown has four really high-character players to choose from and I want to thank Walt Whitlow for taking time to share with us and hope he’ll do it again.
