Who has made the biggest impact on Kentucky running back Benny Snell’s life?

Certainly he’s watched a lot of great running backs, including some now in the NFL, play. He’s also been exposed to a lot of coaches and others during his middle school, high school and college career.

However, his answer to who has made the biggest impact on his life might surprise you.

“Right now the top two are my mom and coach (Eddie) Gran. My mom has been with me every step of the way. She is the love of my life, and there is a time I need to repay her for everything she has done for me,” Snell said.

Why Gran, UK’s offensive coordinator?

“Coach Gran has helped me come into who I am as a running back. When I was coming right out of high school and coming into college, coach Gran put me under his wing and formed me into what I am today,” Snell said.

“I am so happy for those two people in my life.”
