    That award ceremony lasted forever. Glad it was well worth the wait for Josh. Well deserved and just highlights what an incredible story he’s had.

      It’s been awhile since I’ve posted.Josh,Its been a real Joy watching you play..You deserve not only this award, but I have a feeling more are coming your way..You were hungry and you ate..Beast on the field..If you’re not chosen AP first team all American.Then the voters don’t know the game..One more game big fella.We go no better than 7-6 record w/o you..Stoops has a problem plugging the hole that will be left after Y’all put the Smack down Penn St. Talent knows talent,you have changed the way Kentucky football has been thought of ..All Spades all day!!! I hope that the T.B Bucs have a chance to draft you.

  11. SuperTroy18

    He has absolutely changed the program. Could not be more proud of this guy.

  12. Smyrna_Cat

    This is huge!! Good on you Josh Allen!!!!!!

  13. bigbluebanana

    Wow! I love UK and our players, this is great news! Go Big Blue.

    1. CombatMedic_98

      And blue bananas…

      Slater blows bigolblue.

  14. joe_finebomb

    Love it. Just imagine the stats he would have got had he not been held on every single play that was never called. Lol

  15. J-Dub421

    Well deserved.

  16. Paperbagface

    Get ready to put his name in Commonwealth…

  17. damage_control

    2 star to top 10 pick- that’s the level of player development you don’t find most places. Undoubtedly most of the credit goes to Allen for being dedicated beyond belief but it can’t hurt in recruiting either!

  18. paulfinebaumsears

    Well deserved. I read somewhere he was a 2* recruit and also that WCS played football in HS. Way to go Josh!!!

    1. friendsofcoal

      What exactly does WCS have to do with this?

    2. Alex90

      He played his football

    3. friendsofcoal

      How do you play somebody’s (his) football?

  19. BigolBlue

    Kid is a dominant force that is a once in a lifetime defensive player for UK

  20. BigolBlue

    The fact that he put 60 lbs on is super impressive from a mass gained perspective. Lot of time in the gym and dieting.

    1. 4everUKblue

      Holy sh!t did bigolblue just post two back to back positive comments? Prepare yourselves people, the end is near!

    2. Booby Petrino

      4ever I’m not so sure that first ‘positive’ comment wasn’t backhanded. once in a lifetime for uk, suggesting we will not have defensive talent like that again.

    3. 4everUKblue

      Good point Booby, even the hint of a positive from this [email protected]@ss caught me off guard. Thanks for pointing that out.

    4. Booby Petrino

      still tho, same could be said for just 1 positive comment from him…what is the world coming to? lol

  21. Dowser

    Now THAT deserved a notification!… MEOW!

  22. Jiminy Crickets

    Happy for him, he earned it, well deserved

    Congratulations Josh. WOW. We’re very proud of you for all you’ve gave to this Football program, but even more proud of the young man you’ve become off the field. You’re a great roll model for the entire world, and parents and kids would be smart to look at what you’ve done, and how hard work an determination will take you far in life if you truly want to better yourself. Thanks for the Memories my brother, and I wish you everything the world has to offer.

  25. kydrummer

    Well deserved!

  26. cats646

  30. KYCat4EVER

    You deserve it Josh! congratulations

  31. Kat4Life

    Ya done us proud Josh !!!

  32. John Henry

    This is such an honor and huge for Josh. Well deserved and now he goes down right at the top of our Cats all time greats. It is also great for the program and recruiting. The coaches can go into the home of any 4 or 5 star defensive recruit and say come to UK, you can be the best

  33. ClairsyDarsiy

    Go Josh!!!

  34. murphy60

    Josh, from this fan, thank you. Thank you for choosing us, and grow with not only this team, but state. And as fans, we know we will be watching you on Sunday. And what ever team gets you will see not only are they getting a gifted talent, but they are drafting the whole BBN nation. So when you walk across that stage, we all will be right there with you. Thank you for letting the BBN share your time here
