As a reward for his team’s first fall camp practice in full pads, Kentucky coach Joker Phillips rewarded his players with a treat most of them probably associated with what they got for a good pee-wee football game: Ice cream.
Any doubts that the Wildcat players don’t scream for ice cream are quickly erased when you see how quickly they run to the truck. And how they eagerly crowd around it dying to give their orders.
“If they put an ice cream truck at the end of a 40-yard dash, I’d run it in two seconds,” senior center Matt Smith told Kentucky Sports Radio.
We appreciate Phillips’ old school approach to rewarding players. Maybe he should put an ice cream truck in opposing end zones after the Wildcats finished last season 117th in scoring offense.
