Kentucky’s Boom Williams and Benny Snell have had some impressive rushing games but offensive coordinator Eddie Gran emphasized Tuesday not to underestimate the play of the offensive line, especially senior center Jon Toth.
“He’s gotten a lot of reps. He’s really done a good job. As a matter of fact, we used some other centers today just to get them some more reps today because we’ve talked about that. Bunchy (Stallings) got some center reps today just to get him a little break because he has had a lot of reps,” Gran said as Toth and Stallings stayed on the field to work on Stallings’ footwork.
“He’s the quarterback, he’s the one who gets it done and he’s done a fantastic job for us.”
Gran said it was “awesome” to see the offensive line being praised.
“They’ve worked really hard at the stuff we talked about this summer. It’s like I told them today, you know, when we talked about our message from coach Stoops: If they think they’ve arrived then we’re in trouble,” Gran said.
“And we got to keep that edge. But yes, I am proud of them and their success. But we’ve got a long way to go.”
