Meet Steven Duff, your new favorite UK football player

Weighing in at 332 lbs. of twisted steel, Fourth Meal and sex appeal, Steven Duff is your new favorite player on Kentucky’s football team, although most of you don’t even know it yet. The junior offensive lineman from Pleasure Ridge Park in Louisville made SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays last night for his Greg Louganis-like moves off the diving board during Kentucky football’s afternoon at the pool on Tuesday, as captured in these photos:

Duff, who used to pretend he was Johnny Unitas when he played football as a kid, has yet to see a down in game action for Kentucky; his stat sheet reads like this:

2011: Continued to practice with the team

2010: Continued to practice with the team

2009: Redshirt

But that isn’t going to keep me from scouring the internet this afternoon, looking for a place to order a #73 UK football jersey.

    The Duff needs the ball on the goal line. Who’s going to stay in his way if he is diving over the line?
