WATCH: Kentucky debuts Benny Snell Awards Campaign

Benny Snell’s Heisman chances are on the rise, and in response, Kentucky just debuted a new website for his awards campaign: SnellYeah.com. In a video by KyWildcatsTV, Benny describes his journey from a three-star recruit to one of the best running backs in the country. It will give you chills.

“Nothing’s ever been given to me. I’ve been overlooked longer than I can remember. Schools didn’t offer. I ran harder. When I got my opportunity, I took it. It’s a good thing I love this game.

“But even as the yards piled up, I got my haters. You can knock me down. You can say I’m just alright. You can call the numbers lucky. You can call me nothing special. You can tell people not to buy the hype. That’s fine.

“I don’t play for recognition. I don’t play for awards. I play for Kentucky.”

Benny’s career stats via the site:

  • 2,964 career rushing yards (36 yards from becoming the third Wildcat with 3,000)
  • 15 career 100-yard games (three away from tying school record)
  • 39 total touchdowns, breaking Randall Cobb’s UK record
  • Set the school record for points in a season with 116 in 2017
  • Set the school record for touchdowns in a season with 19 in 2017
  • Already ranks seventh in SEC history for touchdowns prior to a player’s senior season, 10 away from tying Herschel Walker’s record
  • On pace to enter SEC’s top-10 all-time leading rushers by the end of this season

The rest of the nation’s finally finding out what we’ve known for years: this kid is special.

    Several years from now we’re all gonna look back and remember how fun it was to watch Benny and the Cats. This team makes it easy to root for them because of their attitudes. Don’t want the season to go by to fast, but can’t wait for Saturday – Go CATS!

    He’s got my vote; there’s not another player in the country I would trade him for.

    The kid bleeds blue like he was born here!!! I’d trade ten Damien Harris for one Benny any day! Better watch how you speak on his name… Benny gonna run the Snell over everyone! Go cats

    That line “I don’t play for recognition. I don’t play for awards. I play for Kentucky” literally brought a tear to my eye. It choked me up. These kids on both major teams, especially basketball, get crapped on too much by our own fans who say they don’t care about the name on the front of the jersey. Here’s living proof that they do.

      WOW! It definitely did. Ha! I meant RB. Jesus. Although there probably isn’t an Arab better than Benny at running the football.

      That’s great; just blew coffee through my nose, Ha ha. I wouldn’t trade him for any Arab in the country, either.
