Photo/Video: Kentucky football players get sneak peak at new $45M facility

On Thursday morning, the Kentucky football program gave its players a sneak peak at the new $45 million football training facility, which will officially be unveiled on Friday.

The new football facility comes in addition with a $126-million stadium upgrade.

Kentucky is hoping to give the program top-tier facilities that can compete with some of the top programs across the country and in the conference in order to appeal to recruits.

Judging by the reactions of current players, it is safe to say the Wildcats enjoyed the new facility and locker room:

And how about an impressive meeting room that features reclaimed barn wood from around Kentucky? It’s a nice touch to the new digs.

And if they didn’t, when head coach Mark Stoops showed off the new team film room which can double as a hi-definition movie theater they likely changed their minds.
