Kentucky DL Josh Paschal was 1 of the 2 Wildcat players to go to SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama, on Tuesday.

And we’re glad he did, because he shared an incredible story about the time he got to meet famous actress/singer Jennifer Lopez.

Paschal, who beat cancer during his Kentucky career, got to make a few big-time media appearances, and he broke down the time J-Lo winked at him after his “Today” appearance:

“I look up and we make complete eye contact,” Pashcal said. “And she winked at me. I hope that wink was real, because I’ve been telling this story ever since it happened. When I tell you I melted, I melted.”

What a great story from the Kentucky defensive leader.
