UK Football v4 300LEXINGTON, KY (12/17/12) – University of Kentucky senior offensive lineman Larry Warford earned his second All-America honor of the season Friday when Phil Steele’s College Football named him a third-team All-American.
 
This is the second All-America honor for Warford after being named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press earlier this week. Warford became the first UK offensive lineman to earn All-America status since Mike Pfeifer (first team by Football News, Mizlou) in 1989 and the first to receive the honor from the AP since Warren Bryant earned second-team honors in 1976. All totaled, Warford is the 12th UK offensive lineman to earn All-America honors in school history.
 
So far this offseason, Warford has been named a second-team All-SEC performer by SEC coaches, AP, Phil Steele’s College Football and CollegeSportsMadness.com, while ESPN.com and CBSSports.com named him first-team All-SEC Team 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.
 
The native of 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 while limiting Nix to only two assisted tackles.
 
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.
