University of Kentucky senior offensive lineman Larry Warford has been named an All-Southeastern Conference performer by The Associated Press, it was announced Monday.
Warford, a native of Richmond and a graduate of Madison Central, earned Second-Team All-SEC honors.
Warford has now earned All-SEC honors in each of the past three year. He was named All-SEC Second-Team by AP each of the last two seasons. In addition, he was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team by league coaches in 2009.
Kentucky has had at least one All-SEC second-team selection every year since 2002.
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 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 that 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 and was chosen as a First-Team Midseason All-SEC selection by Phil Steele’s College Football.
Warford was named a 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.
