Having senior Avery Williamson, UK’s top tackler last season, anchoring the middle linebacker spot helps sophomore Khalid Henderson, an outside linebacker, in a lot of ways.
“He is a great leader. He told us this summer it was his senior year and he wanted to go out on top and I am pretty sure everybody is behind him and wants to see him go out as the man,” Henderson said. “From my standpoint, he’s always been like a big brother to me from the time I came on my official visit.
“One reason I came here was to follow his footsteps because he really motivated me. I could see it in his eyes. If you see somebody that wants to be great, you want to follow in his footsteps and it motivates you to do better. I just view him as a big brother and I try to always follow behind.
“But we all feel that way. He is a strong guy with the experience and other qualities to go with that talent, so everybody does look up to him and wants to play well like he does so our team can win.”
