Former Whitley Co. running back Cody Jones searching for playing time with UK

LEXINGTON, Ky (WYMT) - Last season, former Whitley County running back Cody Jones transferred from Morehead State to the University of Kentucky where he was vying for the #1 spot on the depth chart as fullback.

Kentucky however doesn't use the fullback position much in their offense and Jones did not get the starting job. This season he is looking for playing time any way he can get it.

"Last year was a little overwhelming", said Jones. "First year here, just trying to make a big impact. But, you have a bunch of people in front of you. This year, I am trying to get a little more playing time, especially on special teams. Just doing what I am asked and do what the coaches tell me, and give it my all."

Kentucky kicks off their season on Sunday, September 2nd as they go on the road to play in state rival Louisville. Game time is set for 3:30pm and can be seen on ESPN.
