Former Kentucky Football Players Keeping Super Bowl Dreams Alive

The Big Blue Duo

 

During commercials of the UK women’s basketball game vs. Missouri, be sure to tune in to the AFC Divisional Playoff game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers.  Kentucky’s own Wesley Woodyard and Danny Trevathan are currently leading the Broncos defense to a possible victory over the Chargers.  Both have had terrific years defensively, helping Denver earn a #1 seed in the AFC conference.  As it stands, the Broncos are ahead of the Chargers 14-0.  With #BBN’s Randall Cobb eliminated with the Packers last week, Trevathan and Woodyard, along with fellow Bronco Jacob Tamme, are the only remaining NFL players from UK in playoff contention.

On the year, Trevathan lead their team with 129 total tackles.  Woodyard followed in 2nd, racking up 84 tackles himself.  With All-Pro linebacker Von Miller missing most of the season, both have stepped up tremendously on and off the field for Denver.  Great to see former Wildcats leading such a dominant defense at the next level.

    The Broncos have a “dominant” defense? That’s great! They’ll be surprised to hear that.

    You left out Green Bay punter and former UK player from Murray, Tim Masthay. Granted, Green Bay has been eliminated and Cobb is a superstar, but Masthay has made UK fans proud, too.

      Yes, I forgot Tim. I agree he’s one of the better punters in the league. I honestly always trade for him on Madden every year. One of the few UK players that can say they have won a Super Bowl.
