UK Player Posts Tribute To Joey Couch

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn (LEX 18) - As Kentucky fans get ready to face Northwestern at the Music City Bowl, there is one UK Fan and former player who won't be around to celebrate the team's accomplishments.

Joey Couch may not be here to watch his Cats in person, but his memory lives on. Couch passed away earlier this month suddenly at his home while his wife slept by his side.

Couch may have been a Paintsville High School basketball standout and former Kentucky All-SEC defensive end, but he is remembered for his larger than life personality and kindness.

He also served as a mentor for Kash Daniel, a fellow Paintsville High School standout. In his memory, as Daniel gets ready to shine on the field, he took to social media to show that Couch will be with him while he plays.

"For you coach" Daniel tweeted, showing that he had written his name and number on his taped arm.
