UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY

As former Kentucky football players Nate Northington, Wilbur Hackett and Houston Hogg were recognized Thursday for their role in integrating the Southeastern Conference, the memory of teammate Greg Page hung heavy over the ceremony. Page, who followed Northington as the second African-American player to sign a football scholarship in the SEC but died following a practice injury before making his UK debut, was honored alongside the trio with a statue unveiled outside UK’s new Football Training Center. During the ceremony, UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart revealed that when he was hired almost 15 years ago he was not even aware of the story of UK’s role in integrating the SEC. A lunch with former UK quarterback Paul Karem, who has led the charge to recognize the four Wildcat trailblazers, enlightened Barnhart to that piece of history. With the statue now prominently located between Commonwealth Stadium’s gate 12 and the training center, Barnhart hopes generations of fans to come will know the story of Northington, Page, Hackett and Hogg as well. -Jon Hale, Courier-Journal, Read More
