Sophomore defensive lineman Quinton Bohanna was about 4 years old and running around his grandmother’s house when his uncle asked him if he might like to play football.
“I thought he would take me to a part to play, but he took me to a real, organized team,” Bohanna said.
The sophomore from Tennessee remembers what he was interested in when he first started playing, too.
“You just want to say you look good. You want to say you are on the team and can wear the jersey,” Bohanna said. “High school football is the purest form of football. You get up here (at UK) or higher and it becomes a business. There’s not as much love for the game because of all the money involved in the sport.
“I tell myself to go hard every sprint, every workout, every rep. Football don’t last long.”
He said high school football produces the best times and that he still misses going to camps like he did when he was younger.
“I love football here but it’s not like high school. Man, that was really fun. It’s more about business and work here. But I do think we can have a lot of fun winning this year,” Bohanna said.
