Thursday Quickies: Josh Paschal Edition

Paschal is finishing up his last round of cancer treatments

Paschal Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

Exciting news came out yesterday, as it was announced that Josh Paschal, who missed almost all of last season after receiving a cancer diagnosis, will be undergoing his final round of cancer treatments next month.

Paschal was diagnosed with melanoma on his foot ahead of the 2018 season, but fought to stay in shape and was able to get on the field for limited snaps at the end of the season.

Paschal was moved to defensive end last year, but it looks like he will be back at his normal position of outside linebacker going into next season, where he will look to replace some of the production of his predecessor, Josh Allen.

This is great news to hear for Paschal. Additionally, UK Football Coach Mark Stoops announced that Offensive Line Coach Johns Schlarman is doing very well after he also received a cancer diagnosis before the 2018 season. Schlarman is still fighting the disease, but his current level of treatment isn’t as physically taxing, according to the Herald Leader.

Make sure to keep those guys in your thoughts and prayers moving forward!
