With the week that it has been with anticipation and ticket sales of the upcoming UK Legends VS. Dominican Republic National Team games being held in Rupp Arena AND the Yum! Center, home of the Cardinals we may forget that we are only 27 days away from Kickoff in the Bluegrass and why not continue with the countdown of the Top Ten Kentucky players according to NCAA Football 2012. This time we move to a junior, first one on the list, offensive guard #67 Larry Warford. He was a 3-Star prospect coming out of Richmond, KY where he was the first commitment to the Wildcats for the 2009 recruiting class. Named to the Kentucky All-State team his senior season, moved to Kentucky from California going in to his junior year, he is also the cousin of former Cat Paul Warford.larrywarford2

Heading into college and his freshman season for the Cats, Warford saw the playing field plenty as a back up right guard, named to the SEC All-Freshman team that the league coaches vote on, playing in 10 games. Last season, his sophomore year brought on a much larger roll for the 6’3 330lb beast, starting every single game, helping his offensive line in earning a 2nd ranked SEC sacks allowed, while also leading the team in knockdown blocks with 43. Multiple outlets had named Warford to their 2nd Team All-SEC honors, hard to do in such a great conference only as a 2nd year guy.

Larry is now in his 3rd season in Lexington, where he is expected to continue his progress made during his sophomore year, expecting to up his stats and lock down opposing defenses so that our man Morgan Newton can do his thing in the pocket. Go Cats!
