Former Wildcat player Cameron Mills, who was a member of both the 1996 and 1998 UK national title teams, was in Cadiz Wednesday as part of his youth ministry program. He said it’s been an exciting week for him as both a former player and a UK alum
Mills was a walk-on at UK in 1995 and played in seven games as a sophomore during the 1996 national title run. He was a key member off the bench when Kentucky finished as runner-up in 1997 and again in 1998 when the Wildcats won their seventh national title. Mills uses those experiences as part of his youth ministry, which he has been conducting statewide for nearly 14 years.
Mills talked about how he can relate to fellow Kentuckian Darius Miller when it comes to a native Kentucky son winning a national title and also had a piece of advice for the Kentucky Wildcat team that cut down the nets in New Orleans as part of National Title number eight.
Mills spoke to a Trigg County Fellowship of Christian Athletes youth rally Wednesday night at the Cadiz Baptist Church.
