Three Kentucky players named Preseason All-SEC by coaches

This morning, three Kentucky Wildcats were named Preseason All-SEC by the league’s coaches.

Senior offensive guard Logan Stenberg was named to the Second Team while junior center Drake Jackson made the Third Team. Junior wide receiver Lynn Bowden earned three different honors: Second Team All-Purpose Threat, Third Team Wide Receiver, and Third Team Return Specialist.

A rundown of each Wildcats’ achievements from UK. Last season, Bowden broke the school record for most receptions (67) by a sophomore in school history, surpassing Derek Abney’s 66 from 2001; led Kentucky in catches, receiving yards (745) and touchdown receptions (five); and hauled in the most catches in a season since Randall Cobb’s 84 in 2010. Stenberg started all 13 games in 2018 and graded out at 85.5% for the season, registering 78 knockdown blocks and 154 blocks at the point of attack. He did not miss a single assignment all season and allowed just one sack. Jackson also started all 13 games last season, was responsible for only one-half quarterback sack, had 141 blocks at the point of attack, and had 33 knockdown blocks.

You can see the entire slate of honors after the jump.

    So Bowden didn’t make the first team in anything, darn there must be some great players in the Sec and we all know there is but hard to believe.

    I’m more surprised by our lineman not making first team . Hey that’s good for us they keep giving uk football the fuel they use to be great in the form of media snubs

    The league coaches have to knock KY players down a peg in a hopefull attempt to tell recruits it doesn’t matter how good you are at KY you won’t get the props you deserve. They know if UK starts recruiting at a high pitch they’re done for.

    These choices were by the coaches, not the media. Overall, the east only had 1/3 of the first team but had 50% of the second and third team.

    Alabama the overall leader – by far.
    GA, Missouri, LSU, and Auburn had 8-10 spots
    KY, FL, A&M, and MSU has 5-6
    Vandy, MSU, SC, and TN had 3-4.
    Only Ole Miss got shut out.

    KY was only team with more than 4 spots and none on first team.

    This says the KY talent level is middle of the pack according to the coaches, a huge improvement since Stoops took over, but certainly not yet in the top tier. Will be interesting to see how these look at the end of the year.

    I think by season’s end you will see Bowden and Stenberg on the first team. You will also see Boogie Watson added to this somewhere as well.
