LEXINGTON, Ky. - Offensive guard Larry Warford and linebacker Avery Williamson have been chosen to the Mid-Season All-Southeastern Conference teams selected by Phil Steele’s College Football. Warford is a first-team choice and Williamson is on the third team.
Warford, who is also a second-team Mid-Season All-America pick by the Steele magazine, has been outstanding this season against what is currently rated the nation’s fifth-toughest schedule. The senior from Richmond, Ky., leads the team with 26 knockdown blocks in the first six games. He was named Southeastern Conference Lineman of the Week following UK’s win over Kent State in which he graded at 91.7 percent and helped limit Roosevelt Nix, former Mid-America Conference Defensive Player of the Year, to only two assisted tackles.
Williamson leads the SEC in total tackles (64) and is second in the league in tackles per game. He has added an interception, a fumble recovery and has caused one fumble.
