LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky senior offensive guard Logan Stenberg has been named a preseason Second-Team All-American by the Sporting News, it was announced Wednesday.
Stenberg, who hails from Madison, Alabama, has played in 38 career games, starting the last 26 for the Wildcats. The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder has been an indispensable cog in the unit that helped pave the way for the punishing ground attack UK has unleashed the past few seasons, led by Benny Snell Jr.’s record-breaking career.
In 2013, Stenberg started all 13 games as Snell became the first player in program history to record three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. In the Cats’ 27-24 victory over Penn State in the VRBO Citrus Bowl that capped the best season in 41 years, Snell broke the school’s career rushing record and scored his 47th and 48th career rushing touchdowns. Stenberg graded out at 85.5 percent for the season, registering 78 knockdown blocks and 154 blocks at the point of attack. He did not miss a single assignment all season and allowed just one sack.
Stenberg is a Southeastern Conference Honor Roll member and graduated in May 2019 with a degree in integrated strategic communication and is currently working on a second communication degree.
Kentucky opens the 2019 season against first-time opponent Toledo on Saturday, Aug. 31 at Noon ET on the SEC Network. The following week, Eastern Michigan returns to Lexington (Sept. 7) for a 7:30 p.m. ET start on ESPNU or the SEC Network Alternate. The three-game home stand will conclude with the conference opener vs. the Florida Gators on Sept. 14 in Kroger Field. That highly-anticipated matchup is set to air at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, the only conference game in the prime time window.
