Cincinnati quarterback Brendon Key leadership is one of the reasons they sit at 9-2. He's lead by example all season, fighting through injuries, starting the season as the back up to fellow senior Munchie Legaux and stepping in once Legaux was lost for the season.
Kay leads the Bearcats into Charlotte, N.C. Saturday against the North Carolina Tar Heels, when asked what weakness he sees in their defense. "Overall their a good defense," Kay said. "Their gonna show a lot of different things, coverages and pressures. Our way to exploit it is to execute our offense, pitch and catch...protect up front."
Kay with his weapons have exploited a lot of defenses this year. He finished the regular season passing for 3,121 yards, 22 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and 68-percent in completing his passes. Kay took a moment to reflect on his senior year, "It's been a long road, but it's all been worth it and it's been a awesome journey."
Bearcat Insider asked Kay if he could describe his career in one word, he simply said "Competitor, all these guys trust me, I go out there and compete."
When asked what he'll miss the most once he takes that last snap as a Bearcat. "I'll miss the camaraderie, being in the locker room with the guys...just the little things you'll definitely miss," Kay explained.
Asked what needs to be done to get their second Belk Bowl victory. "We have to go in there get the job done and get our 10th win," said Kay.
