Kaiya Sheron became a ‘Cool Customer’ at Quarterback by thinking like a Goldfish

Kentucky’s first quarterback competition in Liam Coen’s offense will not reach its highly anticipated crescendo for months. Joey Gatewood and Beau Allen have a 15-practice head start on Penn State transfer Will Levis. While seeking out scoop on how the two on campus are performing, an unexpected name has garnered plenty of early praise, true freshman Kaiya Sheron.

A star gunslinger at Somerset, Sheron led the Briar Jumpers to their first State Title in 2019, completing the game-winning touchdown pass with only seconds remaining on the clock at Kroger Field. Unfazed in the final moments of the one-minute drive, it did not take Coen long to notice the the young quarterback’s steady composure.
