Kentucky’s Kash Daniel Tried To Injure Florida QB Kyle Trask With WWE-Style Ankle Lock (VIDEO)
This is beyond disgusting.
Kash Daniel had a lot to say on Wednesday when asked if he tried to hurt injure Florida quarterback Kyle Trask during the Gators’ 29-21 win in Lexington on Saturday.
“Do I talk a lot of crap? Absolutely,” Daniel said after practice Wednesday, per The Courier-Journal. “Do I bump a dude here and there to get underneath his skin and talk while I’m doing it? Absolutely. That’s part of my game. It’s what I do. But am I out there to deliberately hurt somebody? Absolutely not.”
Those comments came before the new video surfaced on Thursday that showed the Kentucky linebacker attempting a WWE-style ankle lock on the QB.
Daniel said he was trying to free his hand from the pile.
“I’ve kept my mouth shut about it,” Daniel told The Courier-Journal. “I’ve been biting my tongue about it as long as I can, because that’s something that I actually hold close to me. I’m a victim of a dirty play (in high school). If you don’t believe me, I’ve got a plate and seven screws in my right ankle to prove that. I’ve got a scar running halfway down my leg. I’m not out there to hurt anybody. …
“I pull my hand out there last second. I just pulled it out. I got it stuck underneath a lineman’s leg with all that weight on it. Then I pulled it free from that, kept hitting stuff, kept moving stuff and finally it came through. Maybe he felt something weird, but I’m not out there to twist nobody’s ankle or hurt nobody. End of story.”
That video says otherwise. He should catch a lengthy suspension for this.
