John Harralson started this petition to University of Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart and

John Schlarman was universally revered by his players, fellow coaches, his old teammates, the Big Blue Nation and most of all his family. He was toughness and dedication personified. Coach Schlarman built the UK offensive line into the fearsome "Big Blue Wall," an unyielding unit now respected throughout the land. He demonstrated superhuman grit and determination against the cancer that prematurely took his life. Coach Schlarman deserves a prominent and permanent recognition commensurate with his stature in life. Through this petition, we who sign-on implore UK Athletics to honor Coach Schlarman by naming the concrete wall encircling the Kroger Field playing surface, "The John Schlarman Big Blue Wall." For 60,000 screaming fans, this would be a visible reminder of the greatness Coach Schlarman brought to UK Football, his community and his family. Such recognition would also serve as on-field inspiration for future generations of football Wildcats. Go Big Blue!
