LEXINGTON, Ky. -- University of Kentucky football head coach Joker Phillips is taking the GAM3DAY READY message across the Commonwealth, starting in Hyden on June 24 at the Old City Park. Admission is free and registration will open at 4:30 p.m. with the football activities starting at 5:30 p.m.

The football activities, which will last for around 90 minutes, are open to youth entering their eighth-grade year or below. Youth will get to participate in various football skills and related drills (punt, pass, kick, 40-yard dash, vertical jump, etc.).

Each youth that participates in the event will receive a free GAM3DAY READY gear pack that includes a shirt, water bottle and other UK items (while supplies last). There will also be a post-event snack for the youth and coach Phillips will address the crowd.
