Benny Snell meets another former Wildcat he’s chasing in the record books

Last week, it was the all-time leading rusher in Kentucky football history with Sonny Collins. Now, Benny Snell got the chance to meet Rafael Little, the player directly ahead of him in the record books.

Little is in Lexington today, where he met with the team and walked through his old stomping grounds.

The former Wildcat checked out the meeting room with his wife and daughter:

Here he is with Mark Stoops:

And in the weight room with what looks to be Josh Paschal:

Between 2004 and 2007, Little managed 5,343 career all-purpose yards, good for eighth in SEC history. He also became just the third player in SEC history to reach 2,500 rushing yds (2,996) and 1,000 (1,324) receiving yds.

With 2,964 career rushing yards, Snell needs just 33 yards to break Little’s total of 2,996 yards to become the No. 3 rusher in Kentucky history.

In case you missed it last week, here is the Snell with Collins, who holds the rushing lead by just 871 yards.

Enjoy the record for a few more hours, Rafael. Odds are good it will be topped tomorrow night when the Cats take on South Carolina.

Sonny’s record, on the other hand, seems safe for a few more weeks, at least… But he shouldn’t get too comfortable, either.

      He was a great back, but he was here during the Hal Mumme years, I think. And even though he probably had lots of yards on the ground, it was much more of a passing offense. Not sure if he was here for Guy Morriss when Hal left, but even then, it was more of a passing team with Jared playing QB. He probably had lots of receiving yards too.

      Yep tag you’re him! Like I said you won’t be able to hide it when basketball season starts. You’re hate for Cal will be impossible to hide. That and you’re posting 50 times a game on the live post during the games, which you’re already doing.

    SuperTroy no disrespect but Little played under Rich Brooks from 2004-2007 and was one of Jokers best recruits from South Carolina from his stent as Working there under Lou Holts. He even played high school ball at the famous high school that had the manager named Radio that a movie was made about. This man had one of the greatest college all purpose careers and doesn’t get the respect he deserves. I’m amazed sometimes at our fans lack of knowledge and memory! Much respect to Raphael!

    SuperTroy I recant I see you were speaking on Pinner. His big year was during the Guy Morris year though. Peace

    Toos had a big year in 2002 , the same year they dumped Gatorade on the coach and lost on a hail mairy to a nick Saban coached lsu tiger team . I think he had 1000+ yard season & a big day of the lsu loss

    Little came through UK in a bad time for backs. But he was a very good player and a lot of fans just didn’t look at him as a running back because he was used in the passing game so much. But he was a very good player for the team

    Little was awesome and is now definitely under appreciated. He was a good back and Woodson’s safety valve.
