Warford ready to dominate defenses

A 6-foot-3, 336 lb. dancing machine?

That’s what Bengals linebacker DeQuin Evans calls Larry Warford. The two were teammates at Kentucky. Evans says Warford, UK’s starting right guard, is the best dancer on the Wildcats’ team.

“I can’t really explain it,” Warford said with a laugh. “I guess I was born with it.”

“Sometimes it’s awkward for me to watch, but I’ve seen him do it and I’m relatively impressed that he can,” says UK offensive line coach Mike Summers. “For a guy who’s 330, he can dance.”

Despite his size 15 shoes, the old adage “light on his feet” certainly applies to Warford. He’s developed into one of the premier offensive linemen in the Southeastern Conference. That automatically makes him one of the best in the country. And it’s his footwork, along with strength and speed, that separates Warford from the rest.

“He’s an amazing athlete,” Summers said, after a recent UK workout. “He’s one of the most explosive big men that I’ve ever been around.”
