Sheehan bleeds blue, dad says

Email I got from Mike Sheehan, father of Highlands' receiver Austin Sheehan. Disregard the shameless plug he gave me, but pay attention to why his son jumped at the chance to be a preferred walk-on at UK

Thank you very much for spending time after the game discussing Highlands/Kentucky football with my son Austin Sheehan and writing the article on your website. Austin and our entire family are Big Blue fans. Having the opportunity to play for Kentucky is most kids dream if you live in this state and Austin has worked hard since he was a little boy striving for his dream to play for the Cats. A lot of people don't get why Austin would accept a preferred walk on to UK prior to his senior high school season, when many other schools are giving him serious looks now. But Austin gets it, I get it and I'm sure you get why he did it. Anyone that bleeds blue, gets it. Mr. Vaught, you are a Kentucky legend and it was an honor for Austin and only adds fuel to the fire of how great Kentucky sports are. Thanks again and I look forward to you following Highlands #6 and #8 the remainder of this year and for the next four years with the Cats.
