Kenny McKinley Featured in NFL Draft Book

Former Gamecock wide receiver Kenny McKinley will be featured in a book about the NFL Draft process titled “Draft Season” by Bobby Deren. McKinley was drafted in the 5th round of the 2009 Draft by the Denver Broncos. He appeared in 8 games for Denver before injuring his knee and being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 28. Here’s the official description of the book:

DRAFT SEASON is the thrilling story of four young football players as they prepare for the bewildering, multi-million dollar extravaganza that is the NFL Draft. Morgan Trent, Kenny McKinley, Frantz Joseph and Lydon Murtha come from different backgrounds, but are united in their determination to make it to the NFL. Once they have played their final down of college football, their eyes immediately turned toward the NFL Draft. DRAFT SEASON takes you inside the everyday battles each player endures as he tries to achieve his lifelong goal of playing in the NFL.

2008 Football Flashback – No. 6

DE Jordin Lindsey’s game-changing interception vs. Arkansas:

Early in the third quarter against the visiting Razorbacks, South Carolina opened up a 20-7 lead.  But after a 15-play, 8-minute drive that ended with a 4-yard Casey Dick touchdown pass, Arkansas cut the score to 20-14 and put the momentum on the side of the visitors.

South Carolina was forced to punt on the ensuing possession and two plays later, Arkansas was at the Gamecocks’ 40-yard line.  But on the next play, in one of the most athletic plays I saw all season, Lindsey stepped back from the line and snagged Casey Dick’s pass for an interception.  Not satisfied with just the INT, Lindsey returned the ball 40 yards downfield to the Arkansas 15-yard line.

Two plays later, Stephen Garcia lofted a 15-yard pass to Kenny McKinley for a touchdown to put the game away.   South Carolina would go on to win the game 34-21.

I scoured the web to find any video of the play, but I didn’t have any luck.  If you come across any, send it my way and it’ll get posted.  I was able to find a photo though:

Review No. 10, No. 9, No. 8 and No. 7 of the countdown.

2008 Football Flashback – No. 7

No. 7 – Kenny McKinley makes history

It’ll be odd not seeing No. 11 with “McKinley” on the back catching passes for the Gamecocks this season.  The 2008 season saw Kenny McKinley break the school record for receptions and receiving yards at South Carolina.  He broke the receptions record against Kentucky and grabbed the yardage record in the Gamecocks win over Arkansas.

Here’s a video of Todd Ellis interviewing McKinley with some nice quotes from Sterling Sharpe:
