Spring football has flown by and Kentucky has just four dates left, including one more scrimmage and next week's spring game. Friday's practice was opened to approximately 50 high school coaches, and the result was a very productive day.

"When guys see people around, for some reason it becomes upbeat, they concentrate a little bit more," head coach Joker Phillips said. "That's probably one of the better practices we've had this spring and I think a lot of it had to do with having people here."

Phillips, in his comments to reporters after practice, went on to say his team has grown significantly from the first spring session, but that there is a lot of work ahead. Saturday's closed scrimmage at Commonwealth Stadium will be the first step in that process.

"I want to have the most competitive scrimmage we've had since we've been here tomorrow," Phillips said. "That's what we told the guys. It's a big day tomorrow. It's really our last day we'll be able to get live work."

Here's video of Phillips' complete comments. Stay tuned until the end, as he has some glowing things to say about cornerback Marcus Caffey, who is currently transitioning from running back to the defensive secondary.
