Keenan Burton on UK football relationships

Burton: "You will never make the same friends that you made it college."

Question: Do you miss the friends and relationships you had at UK or do you develop new friends and relationships in the NFL?

Burton: "You will never make the same friends that you made it college. That's impossible because you did so much with these guys. The things we did here at Kentucky are really not heard of. We changed the culture of football. We made it to where these guys from Georgia, Florida and Texas want to come to Kentucky. When I came to Kentucky, it was not really like that. We are keeping the best talent we have in the state at Kentucky. You will never be able to make new friends like I did at UK, but you have your few that you have. But when I see Wesley, Steve, Andre, Ralf or Tamme, it's definitely special. We miss each other. It's like, ‘How have you been or I saw you doing this on ESPN.' We call and congratulate each other. We definitely stay in touch."
