UK Markey Cancer Center Helping Josh Paschal Get Back in the Game

By Allison Perry

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- For University of Kentucky defensive lineman Josh Paschal (pictured), 2018 was a year of highs and lows.

After being diagnosed with an aggressive melanoma on the bottom of his foot last summer, Paschal underwent multiple surgeries at the UK Markey Cancer Center, where he continues to get monthly immunotherapy treatments.

After sitting out much of his sophomore season, Paschal returned to play in November. He begins 2019 on a major high by being part of UK's Citrus Bowl win over Penn State on New Year's Day.

The Maryland native was a four-star defensive end prospect by all the major recruiting services.

In this new documentary released over the holidays, Kentucky Wildcats TV follows Paschal through his journey to get back on the field.
