[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1980"] One of the four players that will be featured, Nate Northington.[/caption] It's been 50 years since Nate Northington and Greg Page arrived on UK's campus.  A year later Northington broke the color barrier in the SEC with Wilbur Hackett and Houston Hogg on the sideline. Next Thursday at 7:00 they'll be honored with a new statue that sits just outside that new football training facility.  The public is invited to the event that will celebrate a part of history that is too often overlooked. If you've missed this part of history, listen to The Matt Jones Podcast with Hackett and Northington before showing your support next Thursday outside of Commonwealth Stadium.
