Good Sunday to you all, Big Blue Nation.
Sorry for the delayed Quickies but I am out of town and I’m in a different time zone therefore I slept in a little later than normal.
Today’s Quickies are dedicated to Kentucky Wildcats football player Drake Jackson because he was named as the top center in the SEC by Cole Cubelic. Jackson committed to Kentucky as a four star recruit and the second ranked center in the country. He was an Army All American and he has started 20 straight games for the Cats.
He was on the SEC Offense First Team last season and is set to be the anchor of what should be a great offensive line this season.
