Woodyard calls it “huge blessing” to play with Williamson

By LARRY VAUGHT

Wesley Woodyard and Avery Williamson both came to Kentucky with chips on their shoulders because they both felt they were under valued by recruiting analysts.

Obviously, both had great careers at UK and led the team in tackles. Both also went into the NFL with a lot to prove, especially Woodyard since he was not even drafted.

Now both are teammates for the Tennessee Titans and both playing well.

“It’s amazing to have a Wildcat next to you,” Woodyard said. “He is a young guy learning the game and I would like to think I can help him. It’s just a huge blessing for me to play with a guy like that.”

Wesley Woodyard enjoys giving back to Lexington

By LARRY VAUGHT

Wesley Woodyard loves giving back to others and will again for three days in May in Lexington.

The highest will be a golf scramble fundraiser at the University Club May 23 for 16Ways Foundation. The foundation’s goal is to primarily work with at-risk youth between the ages of 8 and 18 with a secondary focus on adults in employment transition.

But it’s obvious Woodyard, the former UK linebacker who now plays for the Tennessee Titans, is even more excited about his May 21 Changing Lives One Play at a Time Camp from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Bryan Station High School for youth 8-14. It is for both football players and cheerleaders.
