Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson has been working his way back to return from a season-ending injury last season.
But Wilson has some other concerns about returning to the field outside of his injury.
Talking with Paul Finebaum, Wilson said playing in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic stays on his mind, particularly when you add in the fact that Wilson is expected to become a father within the next few weeks.
Kentucky QB @TerryTouchdown3, who has a baby girl due in a few weeks, on the challenge of playing during a pandemic. "We’re really hungry for the season. … But thinking about how dangerous it is with me bringing a new child into this world, it’s always on your mind."— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) July 29, 2020
Wilson added that he thinks the University of Kentucky has done a good job of putting in protocols and procedures to keep everyone safe and healthy, but it’s clear that this is a difficult time for him, and understandably so.
“At the facility, they’re doing a good job of keeping us bubbled and making sure that we’re following the protocols and doing what we need to do, wearing our masks, hand-sanitizing, and taking the temperature before every workout,” said Wilson.
Even with the added concern, Wilson is still hungry for the new season to begin.
“We’re all adjusting, but we’re really hungry for this season,” he said. “It’s like, why would this have to happen right now? This is the season we’ve all been wanting, everybody’s back and we’re ready to go.”
I mean, honestly, can’t we all agree with Wilson’s quote here? This is one of the most well-rounded Kentucky teams in recent years with the potential for a great season. COVID-19 has the potential to throw a major wrench in what could be a fantastic season for the Wildcats.
Hopefully, we’re able to see Wilson and the Wildcats hit the field this season.
