“One of the main reasons I came to the University of Kentucky — and I did want to play in the SEC — was that I wanted to play at a school where I¿felt wanted and needed, but at the same time I wanted to know if I got hurt they would not just take me out and I¿would never see the field again. Or if I was doing wrong, they would take me out, smack me on my behind and let me know this is not right.”
Question: Are you proud that you kept your word after that incident when you vowed not to be in trouble again and it has now been two trouble-free years for you off the field?
Wilson: “Right. I am just trying to keep my head in the books and go to church as much as I can. I¿pray to the man above just for a second chance. Some people don’t get a lot of second chances, but when you do you have to make the best of it.”
Question: Did an incident that could have threatened your playing career somehow turn out to change you and make you a better person and player?
