Preseason all-SEC snub drives Logan Stenberg

Kentucky’s offensive line has got more credit the last two seasons because Benny Snell has rushed for over 1,000 yards two straight seasons and has a chance to become UK’s all-time leading rusher this season. Still, no UK lineman was named to any of the three preseason all-SEC teams picked by SEC media members in July.

“I would like to say it won’t bother me but I have thought about it. It does drive me in the weight room to get stronger. Everybody is going to be good in the SEC. I have to have an edge. We all do,” Kentucky guard Logan Stenberg said. “I have to be nasty or I have to be strong or faster. I am always working to improve my game a little extra to where I can overcome all that.

That mentality comes naturally. He’s always been aggressive going back to middle school. He’s been the lineman known for picking up personal foul penalties.

“That has definitely come back to bite me in the ass a couple of times but I don’t think I could change. I am not the biggest, fastest or strongest, so I have to be the nastiest. That’s how I think about it,” the Alabama native said.

  1. This don’t come as a big surprise to me. He probably deserves recognition, but UK gets no football respect in the SEC. This team must go out and earn some old fashion respect, starting this year.
