Good morning. Sometimes in life, you just have to pause and take a look back on all the great things that have happened. So today, we are doing that in the Brew with soccer, baseball, and the student-athlete’s academics.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

⚽️ Miller earns First Team
⚾️ Thanks BBN!
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 To the Max. The United Soccer Coaches announced that Max Miller made the 2023 NCAA Division I Men’s All-Southeast Region First Team. Miller was a captain on the team this season and led in assists with a total of seven. The sophomore has been named to many awards throughout his collegiate years already, so this is just one more to add to the list.

🔼  Sweet Support. Everything is better when you have a big fanbase to support you. Devin Burkes expressed his gratitude for Big Blue Nation as the season approaches. Burkes is a redshirt junior catcher who's been with Kentucky since 2021. You can see him and the rest of the Cats on the field at their home opener on Feb. 20. Don’t forget to buy your season tickets also!


Win it, Burkes. Now that baseball is on your mind, let's take it back to the NCAA opener where Devin Burkes smoked the game-winning home run.

Today’s question— what team was the NCAA opener against?

Academic Achievements. It was another amazing year for Kentucky student-athletes when it comes to Graduation Success Rate. For the fourth year in a row, 92% of student-athletes have graduated. This is one point above the DI national average of 91%. There were 167 Wildcats who received diplomas or certifications in the 2022-23 academic year alone, which set a school record.
