The bowl season is upon us and on New Year’s Eve morning all eyes in Kentuckiana will be glued to either the Tax Slayer Bowl or the BWW Citrus Bowl.

The University of Kentucky will face Georgia Tech in the Tax Slayer Bowl while the University of Louisville will square off with Louisiana State University (LSU) in the BWW Citrus Bowl.

UK will be playing in its first bowl game since 2011 while U of L is playing in a bowl game for a seventh straight season.

With that said, several alums from LCSN schools will have the privilege of playing in these two bowl games.

He has returned all 14 punts for the Cats this season for an average of 8.4 yards a return including a 65-yard return that went for a touchdown.  He has also caught three passes for 28 yards.
