Comments from those close to Kenny McKinley

Posted Sep 21, 2010

Comments from wide receivers coach Adam Gase and others on the passing of Kenny McKinley.

"Kenny was the life of the wide receivers' meeting room with his personality and the way he was always joking around with his teammates. He made such a positive impact on our receivers, loosening things up with his smile and laugh. Kenny worked extremely hard to get to where he was in the spring with his rehab program and was very excited about his future. I really enjoyed my time with him during the last two years and will cherish the memories we had together. He was a great kid, and everyone on our team will miss him."
-Denver Broncos Wide Receivers Coach Adam Gase

"My favorite memory is that Kenny really was the first player to commit to South Carolina (in Spurrier's tenure), although he committed about two days before I was hired. During recruiting I asked why he committed to South Carolina and he said, "I read in the paper that they were going to hire you. I knew the ball would be in the air and I'd have a chance to play wide receiver.' When he showed up he must have weighed 150 pounds. Skinny kid. Of course he's the all-time leading receiver (in South Carolina history). Probably the big game was the Tennessee game of `05. We snuck in there to win 16-15. He made several third down catches. The slant and fade routes, he could run them as well as any receiver I ever coached. We compare Ace (Sanders) to Kenny as far as quickness to get out of routes and so forth. Kenny was always a wonderful team player, well-liked by everyone and never complained if he didn't get passes."
-University of South Carolina Head Coach Steve Spurrier

"Kenny was my closest of friends. We became so close so quickly, and although it was an unlikely bond it was as tight as you could get. We spoke regularly and he was always there for me. He was the last guy I saw in Denver and was looking forward to seeing him again this week. I loved him like a brother and always will for his big heart and huge smile. I will miss him greatly."
-Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Tom Brandstater (former teammate with McKinley in 2009; fellow ’09 draft class member)

"Kenny was such a good guy, such a fun guy to be around. He was a happy guy who had a great sense of humor and he’s going to be missed by so many people. He was funny and always kept people around him upbeat. I’m shocked he’s gone."
-Minnesota Vikings Wide Receiver Sydney Rice (college teammate of McKinley)
