The University of Kentucky is no longer just a basketball school, and Wildcat fans can thank Benny Snell Jr. for that. This former 3 star running back burst onto the scene as a freshman, rushing for 1,091 yards and 13 touchdowns. He set 6 UK freshman records. Each year he improved, receiving awards for Freshman All-SEC in ‘16, 2nd Team All-SEC in ‘17, and 1st Team All-SEC in ‘18. For his sophomore campaign, Benny put the college football world on notice when he rushed for 1,333 yards rushing and 19 rushing touchdowns. After rushing for 1,449 yards in his junior season, Snell became one of four running backs in SEC history to have three consecutive seasons. Snell helped the Wildcats to it’s first 8 win season since 2007, and its first 10 win season in over 40 years! In his career at Kentucky, Snell was able to tie or break 14 school records. This list includes most career rushing yards, most touchdowns, most rushing touchdowns, most 100 yard games, and more. Snell might slip a little in the draft after an average combine, but Benny will always be a legend in Lexington. At every level, Benny Snell has been over looked, and underrated as a football player, and I believe now is the time for people to get ready for a lot of “Snell Yeah’s”
