Kentucky offensive guard Logan Stenberg doesn’t just like blocking for two-time, 1,000-yard rusher Benny Snell. He “loves” blocking for the Kentucky junior.
“I know if I give him a little hole, he’s going to hit it hard. He’s going to make me look good. And I will make him look good sometimes if I can widen that hole a little extra. It’s a good tradeoff,” Stenberg said.
“If I don’t give him a hole, he will make one. He will lower the head and go straight through it. Sometimes I will get his head in my arm, or even my head, but it is just part of the game.”
Stenberg says the daily example Snell sets makes it easy to block for him, too.
“He brings it every day. Weight room, indoor facility, outdoors. He is always ready,” Stenberg said. “I love it. It makes blocking easier. If you got someone who is not appreciative and doesn’t want to work, it’s like why am I blocking for this guy.
“Once you have somebody who wants to get better and improve the offense, it drives you to want to do the same and that’s what Benny does.”
