  • Vaught’s Views: Kash Daniel thinks strong academic work can lead to success in football

    By Larry Vaught

    Kash Daniel has a lot of lofty goals for himself during his sophomore season at Kentucky and has them posted on his apartment wall so he sees them every night.
    He wants to bench press 405 pounds and squat 550. He wants to play on every special team UK has. He wants to start at linebacker even though UK returns linebackers Jordan Jones and Courtney Love, its top two tacklers from last year.
    Daniel also wants to make a national name for himself after making 19 tackles in 13 games last year.
