Best Thing In Sports Today: Kentucky Football Signs 11-Year Old, Who Gives Awesome Press Conference

Advertisement

Sometimes we just need to talk about the good in the sports world. Today, it’s Kentucky football and its signing of an 11-year old in-state recruit. Now, it’s not what you think. This isn’t some just reach to sign an 11-year old like we’ve seen happen before. This is Luke Klausing, an 11-year old battling cystic fibrosis.

These type of stories are the ones that make me choke up. During camps you see teams bringing in kids that will never get a chance to play college sports and give them a handoff for a touchdown. Tears every single damn time. You see things like this across the country and again, tears every. Damn. Time.

I’ll tell you what though? I LOVE this kid. He’s the most confident person in the world and could give some athletes a pointer or two when it comes to press conferences. I mean look at this response:

Who gives a shit about a 31-year losing streak when you’re as cool as Luke? I hope Stoops lines him up at wide receiver (his listed position) for the first play of the game in the Swamp. If you don’t think he’d make a ridiculous catch to take it to the house, you’re out of your mind.

Good on Stoops and Kentucky football here for making a kids dream come true and keep fighting, Luke. Also a quick shout out to Team IMPACT, just an amazing charity organization who helped put all this together. I highly suggest shooting them a follow (@GoTeamIMPACT) and check out their website by clicking here.

As for Luke, hopefully Kentucky gets that win over Florida for you.
