Cat Scratches Feature: The smiling soccer star

Sept. 10, 2009

When he took the pitch Friday night at the UK Soccer Complex for the Kentucky men's soccer season opener against IUPUI, freshman forward Cameron Wilder could not stop smiling.

Registering a start in his first collegiate game, the native of Kennesaw, Ga., stood stoic for the national anthem, alongside his Kentucky teammates at midfield. Just a few seconds later, Wilder was standing in front of the stands, pumping up the crowd of 1,412 fans and boasting a contagious smile that is becoming his trademark.
