Although South Florida senior cornerback Kayvon Webster has never played against Teddy Bridgewater on the gridiron, Webster and Bridgewater have known each other for over fifteen years.
“I’ve known Teddy for a long time, since I was like 6,” Webster told Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. “I’m proud of Teddy. I’ve seen him come up from a 6-year-old kid playing at the park. He always played quarterback. … I’ve never really played against him. I always played a pound (division in Little League) higher, and my school never played his school. He’s something like family to me. It’s going to be a good game to play against him.”
Bridgewater isn’t the only player on the Louisville roster that Webster has a connection with. He was high school teammates with Adrian Bushell at Miami’s Monsignor Pace High during his sophomore season. Webster didn’t get to play against Louisville last year due to symptoms of a concussion. He’ll get his first and likely his last opportunity to go up against his long time friends.
