During Thursday's media availability, Kentucky linebacker Kash Daniel was asked how happy he was that teammate Josh Paschal was done with cancer treatment.

He started his answer by telling a story of how he was in the gym on Tuesday, and Paschal joined him to do some workouts.

Defensive Coordinator Brad White walked in on them lifting, and he was not very happy about it.

"I was like 'why is he so pissed off at Josh for?', said Daniel. "Then he was like 'you got treatment tomorrow,' Then I said 'well you didn't tell me that!'"

Paschal had his final cancer treatment on Wednesday.

He was diagnosed with malignant melanoma on his foot last August. He began treatments immediately. He's done now.

"The way he handled it and how he came to work every day knowing that he was going to beat it, knowing that his brothers had his back, and he always had a smile on his face," said Daniel. "He never once complained, he never once was in a bad mood, and I told him 'that's helped me.' Keeping me with a positive mindset and a positive attitude know matter what's going on.

So for Josh to be able to go through what he did and be back out here with us, it's unreal. He's an unbelievable human being, an unbelievable teammate, and I'm just honored to have him as a friend."
