When the Kentucky Wildcats step on the field tomorrow afternoon, there will be a small patch on their helmets recognizing two members of the Wildcats program facing challenges off the football field.
The patch will have the initials of Josh Paschal and John Schlarman, both of whom are battling illness. Schlarman has been a trooper, taking chemotherapy treatments and somehow still finding a way to be at practice for this team. Paschal has been recovering after doctors found malignant melanoma on his foot, and the team has been breaking huddles with “JP on 3” as a way of rallying around their teammate. The players also received wristbands with the phrase on it as a way of supporting Paschal.
This is a really awesome way of recognizing two outstanding individuals who obviously have made such an impact in the Kentucky locker room. Continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers moving forward.
