Seneca's Pearson visits Lexington

Pearson said - "It's like finding a great woman. You know it's there but you fight it and you go for something else but you always come back to that good woman (Kentucky)."

- Louisville Seneca came to Lexington to scrimmage Henry Clay Friday night. They were a load for Henry Clay to try to handle. - We asked his enjoyment level in the game. "It was great coming out here today being with my teammates," Pearson said. "It was good to come out here to be a better team today coming out here compete against other players and not yourself. We are trying to see what everybody has in their heart. It's not about skills, academics or athletically on the field, it's about the play you've got in your heart. You've got to push through it and if you can you can go from there."

Speaking of pushing through it, Pearson played on both side of the ball and we didn't see him take a play off. "It's pretty tough, it's a mental challenge. You know what you can do physically but your mind questions you but once you physicalness knocks out that mind you ignore fatigue."

He said it is a relief getting the recruiting process out of the way. "It's a pretty big relief. Now it is focusing on what matters most, academically." We asked how close he was? He said he has to take a couple on-line classes and intends to take the test again. He said he is a little short. He said Kentucky has always been there in the recruiting process and Joker did most of the work on him Pearson said - "It's like finding a great woman. You know it's there but you fight it and you go for something else but you always come back to that good woman (Kentucky)." He said unlike most schools in recruiting, you don't see the head coach that much and when the head coach (Phillips) comes after you, you know that he wants you to play for him.
