03/08/2012 - The 2011 University of Kentucky football seniors put their physical abilities on display Wednesday morning at the Nutter Field House as the UK football team hosted its annual "Pro Day" workouts for professional scouts. Representatives of 23 National Football League teams, along with an NFL Combine scout and members of the Canadian Football League, put the Wildcats through the workout. The group of seniors, who helped Kentucky achieve great success on the field, were tested in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, agility drills, various position-specific drills and some weightlifting. "This is an exciting day that shows our program has come a long way," UK head coach Joker Phillips said. "I can remember when there were only one or two guys here and they were local. Now, we have pretty much every team represented here today. That speaks volumes to how far we have come." Two of the players that were in attendance Wednesday, Danny Trevathan and Winston Guy, had already worked out in February at the official NFL combine. Trevathan participated in workouts Wednesday, while Guy elected not to participate because of a strained groin but did talk to scouts. Trevathan spent significant time in linebacker drills, along with fellow senior Ronnie Sneed. Defensive backs Mychal Bailey, Randall Burden, Anthony Mosley and Taiedo Smith went through workouts, along with wide receivers Nik Brazley and Matt Roark, tight end Nick Melillo, offensive linemen Billy Joe Murphy and Chandler Burden, and defensive linemen Mark Crawford and James McDevitt. Phillips is hopeful this class will be able to add to Kentucky's recent success in the NFL. - Kentucky football

08/24/2011 - On the surface, there doesn't appear to be much room for improvement on a season where you led the Southeastern Conference in tackles. But University of Kentucky senior linebacker Danny Trevathan and the football coaching staff are expecting just that after Trevathan elected to return to Lexington for his senior season. "Danny's big deal is we need Danny to be a leader for us," UK head coach Joker Phillips said. "He has the capability. I saw it in a different country. He has all the tools to be a leader." After turning down the NFL draft, Trevathan traveled with a group including Phillips, UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart and senior offensive lineman Stuart Hines to Ethiopia on a service trip this summer. The trip to Africa - during which the UK Athletics group distributed food, planted gardens, visited orphanages and painted a building - pushed Trevathan from his comfort zone, Phillips said. "Danny could definitely be a vocal leader for us," Phillips said. "I saw it for seven days with people who had no clue who he was and he did not know who they were." This fall Trevathan has taken on the added leadership role during preseason camp, and he says he can tell his younger teammates are now looking to him for help. "I think that guys have been wanting me to tell them what to do, help them more," Trevathan said. "I just see another side of these guys, along with another side of me. They want me to help them with little stuff, and I think that's going to help me get better first and help us be a better team overall."- Jon Hale, KyForward.com

08/09/2011 - Kentucky football coach Joker Phillips has spent the off-season picking up pieces on offense and defense. The second-year head coach had to replace a lot of offensive production: Quarterback Mike Hartline, running back Derrick Locke and wide receiver Chris Matthews all graduated, and junior wide receiver Randall Cobb left for the NFL Draft. In all, the Wildcats had to replace all 26 touchdown passes, 19 of 26 rushing touchdowns and 18 of 26 touchdown catches. The Wildcats' top 11 tacklers from 2010 return, including senior linebacker Danny Trevathan, who led the Southeastern Conference with 144 tackles last season. But new co-defensive coordinator Rick Minter has taught the team an entirely new defense after a 6-7 season. - AP Sports
