The Kick Off

My name is Jacob Clutch Davis, and I have never kicked for a football team in my life. I’m hoping to change that this year.
 
There’s a new indoor football team coming to Lexington, Kentucky, called the Bluegrass Warhorses. Their inaugural season is in 2014, and they’re holding open tryouts this summer. I’m going to try out for the team.
 
I’m the program director here at ESPN Sports Radio 1300 and I host Sunday Sports from 9-11AM, so obviously I love sports. I’ve played soccer since I was old enough to run around outside, but my passion for football didn’t really develop until my college years. I considered attempting to walk on during my years at the University of Kentucky, especially with our struggles at the position since 2006. School work and my need to work during my time in college, and the fact that the coaching staff at UK made it clear that they weren’t too concerned about finding any scholarships for their kickers kept me from it.
 
The open tryouts for the Bluegrass Warhorses allow me to see if I even had a chance of making it on a team at any level. I’m willing to sacrifice my four years of college eligibility to find out.
 
Days to first tryout: 31

Alls Well That Ends Well
Well, good news everyone: I got a call back from the Bluegrass Warhorses. I was invited to another tryout coming up on June 29th! That gives me plenty of time to continue my training, get stronger, practice some more kicking, and get mentally prepared to...

Here We Go
Well, we're mere hours away from the tryout. I didn't think I'd be as nervous as I am, but boy was I wrong. I'm honestly not sure how much sleep I'm going to get tonight. Registration starts tomorrow at 9:00 AM at Scott County High...

Only a Few Days Left
Days until tryout: 3 I decided to skip a holiday update and enjoy my Memorial Day, as I hope all of you did as well. Alex and I didn't do a whole lot in our Friday workout anyway. He timed me on 20, 30, and 40 yard sprints, and we worked on my...

We'll Call This a Rebound
Ok. I'm feeling a lot better after Thursdays workout than I was after Wednesdays. I'm feeling a bit more confident. I have a lot more to improve, but I'm sure Fit Kentucky can help me get there. This workout went a LOT...

The Truth Reveals Itself
Sorry for the delay on the update, because of weather and scheduling conflicts, Alex and I had to move my planned Tuesday workout to last night instead. Last night's workout was by far the most trying of the workouts thus far. Of course, it's...

Wait...I Have Lats?
Days to first tryout: 12 Well, my legs were really killing me Friday. Luckily Alex had me do a core-centric upper body day. Exercises included: suspended pushups, body weight rows, an exercise Alex called Power to the People, upright weighted rows, an...

Leg Days Are Worst Days
Days until first tryout: 17 The good news is that I'm able to walk without any problems. Sitting down and standing up are an entirely different story. Alex from Fit Kentucky had me start out in high gear yesterday with a leg day right...

The Weekend's Here, and I'm Probably Not Going to Work Out
Days to first tryout: 22   Ok, so, I’m picking up my home workouts and it is not going well. I’m pretty sure I’m the person that is the least able to construct a workout regimen. I’m going to need some help on...

I Have an Agent, Apparently
Days to first tryout: 26   Yesterday we had Yeremiah Bell on the Sunday Sports show with us. I got a chance to get more of an idea of what it’s like to try out for a team as a walk on, which I assume mirrors pretty closely what going to an...

PAPERWORK!
Days to first tryout: 29   I’m really curious to see how the whole process of trying out for a professional athletic team goes. I received the player tryout paperwork yesterday from Eric Taylor, co-owner of the team. It’s pretty basic,...
