    The UK Football GOAT

      Congrats Josh! What a class individual this young man is, we were so lucky to have him!

    I dont get how u can win two defensive player of the year awards but not best linebacker. Very happy for Josh though. Special guy.

    1. cats646

      That is strange.

    2. BigolBlue

      Same thing as maxwell and heisman kinda would be my guess.

    3. ClutchCargo

      Different group of voters for each award, I’m guessing.

    4. Logic_Prevails

      I think voters were probably split on what position he plays. He is a linebacker in our scheme but some people may also think of him as a defensive end. He may have received votes in both categories.

    We’re so lucky to have him!!

    Hell yea

  5. TreyTingle

    Couldn’t be happier to see all of the success of this guy! This kid at the beginning of the season said he came back to change the culture. He did just that. Mr. Allen, Wandale Robinson could learn something from you about a man keeping his word. Go get your money young man you deserve it! Go Cats!!

    Wait yo?! I don’t get the trophy yet? Oh ok, ok….that’s cool. Make sure I get that tho!

    100 times congratulation to Josh! Can’t earn it more.

    1. cats646

      He looked at that guy like ” I better have my trophy b!tch” gotta love him

    2. BlooBloodRon

      Totally ??

    3. 4everUKblue

    Josh Allen from…KENTUCKY! Yes,
    UK proud.

    Congratulations, to Josh. Staying the extra year earned this man a ton of money at the next level and made himself a legend at UK. Hopefully he can have a great NFL career. He has the work ethic and the ability to be one of the best linebackers in the NFL.

  9. Trevathan

    This is the stuff I could only create on playstation on the old ncaa game. Never thought the results could be real for an individual defensive player from uk, especially on a nine win team.

    1. cats646

      Dude you’re sooooo right!

  10. BigolBlue

    Good for him. Kid deserves all these awards.

  11. J-Dub421

    Josh Allen is special. We’re so lucky to have him at UK.

  12. Paperbagface

    Congratulations Josh!!


    He will be a better pro than Devin White and anyone who is drafted higher than him! A very special player like a Mack or Von Miller. Go get your money big guy, you deserve it!! You will always be beloved by the BBN. Definitely retiring 41 @ Kroger Field. One of my favorite players to ever wear the blue and white

  14. notFromhere

    Could not be prouder of anyone in UK Blue. He’s a great young man, and I pray he will stay humble and keep working hard, so God can continue to bless him. Thank you, Josh!

  15. Smyrna_Cat

    So excited to see this for Josh and for UK Football!!!

  16. BigolBlue

    He definitely needs his name somewhere in that stadium soon.

    1. BluKudzu

      They should do it today. This guy has accomplished more than any defensive player in the history of UK football. Career/season, it does not matter.
      UK football fans have no idea what we have just witnessed. The records broken for the season, Best in the SEC, AA, unbelievable.
      Josh 41 Allen. The best ever to wear blue and white.

    2. JoshtheCATSfan

      Agreed!! Allen and Snell for sure!!!!!

  17. CoachCat

    Not bad for a 2 star recruit that was committed to Monmouth. Congratulations buddy. You put in the work now enjoy the rewards

  18. Dark Soul

    This dude is a beast. Some NFL team is going to draft the defensive rookie of the year for sure.

  19. BPatte

    Outstanding player! Best we’ve had for a long time!

  20. JoshtheCATSfan

    I am so proud of these KY seniors!!! Right now draft wire has Allen, Edwards, and Snell, not a senior, listed in the top 10 per position. It was not long ago UK did not have a single player drafted tot eh NFL. This is truly a group of exceptional young men that made a huge mark on UK football. Now go get that money boys!! You have earned it!!!!!

  21. katfan33

    Let’s go ahead and get Josh’s name and number on the ring of honor. Well deserved!!
