UK Football v3 300LEXINGTON, KY (12/4/12) – For the second consecutive day, University of Kentucky football senior offensive lineman Larry Warford has been named an All-Southeastern Conference performer. This time the native of Richmond, Ky., was selected second-team All-SEC by league coaches, the league office announced Tuesday.
 
This is the fourth honor Warford has received from league coaches during his time at Kentucky. Warford was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2009, followed by selections to the All-SEC second team each of the past two seasons. Warford is the first UK offensive lineman to earn All-SEC honors by league coaches three times.
 
Kentucky has had at least one All-SEC second-team selection by league coaches every year through 1997. Warford was named second-team All-SEC by the Associated Press on Monday.
 
Warford received high praise throughout the season from the UK coaching staff for playing with amazing skill up front. He did not allow a quarterback sack all year, grading at 90.3 percent for the season and totaling 48 knockdown blocks.
 
Warford, who came to UK from Richmond, Ky., ended his UK career having played in 47 games with 37 consecutive starts. The senior was named SEC Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week after UK’s win over Kent State, handling blocking responsibilities on KSU’s star lineman Roosevelt Nix. In the game, Warford collected eight knockdown blocks and graded out at 91.7 percent.
 
Warford began the season on the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Trophy Watch Lists, while he was chosen as a first-team midseason All-SEC selection by Phil Steele’s College Football. Warford led the UK offensive line being named game captain five times throughout the season. Warford helped UK tailbacks earn 4.9 yards per carry during the season, including rushing for 342 yards against Samford.
