UK Football: Freshman Kemp used to cheer for Gators, now he’s looking to run through them

As a kid you would find UK freshman running back JoJo Kemp at the swamp.

Not the swamp with the real gators, Kemp is referring to The Swamp, home of the University of Florida Gators.

Florida never offered Kemp a scholarship, but he says he’s not disappointed. Florida wanted him to play safety but he knew in his heart his position was running back. He’ll get a chance to show the Gators what he’s got on Saturday in Commonwealth Stadium.

Kentucky hasn’t beat Florida in 26 years. In fact, in their last five meetings Kentucky has only averaged 7.2 points. Kemp is averaging 9.3 points per carry, so they will need more of that production from him if Kentucky hopes to post a victory, and end the streak, versus the Gators on Saturday.
