Sophomore Benny Snell has earned All-Southeastern Conference honors — first team by the media, second team by the coaches — at running back.

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said Tuesday that was a big deal.

“You are in with some very talented people. I think it’s a credit to our offensive players, our offensive coaches who put him in a position to be successful, and for individually – I touched on it the last time we were in here – he just has a great desire to play well,” Stoops said at his press conference to talk about the Music City Bowl.

“You really just can say enough about him, the desire and the passion he plays with. He’s a tough guy to tackle. I think our offensive line has done a very good job at times and we scheme things up at times, but I say you’ll have to credit him, his individual effort, his passion and his desire.

“He’s been very durable, that’s why that he’s in the position that he’s in.”

  1. Well deserved Benny.

  2. Gotta luv the Bennie!! He deserves every accolade he can get. If we had just a few more driven guys on the team, we could possibly finished 10-3 instead of 7-6.
