Sonny Collins, quite possibly the coolest Cat ever to hit the football field, has been named an SEC Legend.
The former running back, who played at UK from 1972-75, will represent Kentucky at the SEC Championship in Atlanta at the end of the season. Collins was a two time All-American who still holds the Kentucky career record for rushing yardage and also holds school records for rushing attempts (777), rushing touchdowns (26) and 100-yard rushing games (18). A native of Madisonville, Kentucky, Collins played for the Atlanta Falcons for one season before a knee injury ended his career.
I just hope he wears those boots.
