Benny Snell Explains Why Benny Snell is the SEC’s Best Running Back

Benny Snell brought plenty of swagger to SEC Media Days.

Predicted by many as a First Team All-SEC selection, the Kentucky running back still doesn’t believe he gets enough respect.  Today he made sure everyone knows that Benny Snell is the best running back in the SEC.

It started in the Main Room, when I couldn’t even finish asking the question.

Shortly after, the SEC Network’s Peter Burns asked Snell, “Who’s the best running back in 2018?”

Without hesitating, Benny responded in third person.

“Benny Snell is the best running back because he’s durable.  He can get 200+ carries and still be able to finish the season.  Against Eastern Kentucky he broke his rib, was able to finish the game and still score a touchdown.”

Josh Allen took it one step further.  The Kentucky All-SEC outside linebacker said Snell is the best running back in the nation.

“I go against the guy, and I go against a lot of great running backs, but competing with him and being on the same team, I feel like he’s the best running back in college football.”

College football, you’ve been put on notice.

    Confidence is great and he’s probably just trying to get a laugh in ways. But you must be careful getting cocky and giving other teams bulletin board material AKA lets shutdown the best RB in SEC

      As of right now teams are only gonna worry about Benny snell jr anyways, until we prove our qb situation is decided and it’s a actual threat. I love it, we know he’s gonna he crucial for us this season, he knows it, and our oponents know it, so might as well hype himself up somewhat and lead our squad by example.

    I bet he climbs high as top 5 in highsman votes – he will be handcuffed due to us (team) getting too many L’s

    Well, as long as he doesn’t get “held back” by the refs this year he should do quite superb!
