The individual honors continue to roll in for the Kentucky Wildcats, as four players were named All-SEC by league coaches on Tuesday.


Linebacker Josh Allen, running back Benny Snell Jr, offensive guard Bunchy Stallings, and wide receiver Lynn Bowden were all named to the All-SEC teams. Allen, Snell, and Stallings were named to the first team while Bowden was named to the second team as an all-purpose performer.



The three first team selections are the most for Kentucky since Randall Cobb, Micah Johnson, and Tim Masthay all earned first team honors in 2008.


Additionally, Allen, Snell, and Stallings were named first team by the Associated Press on Monday.


Allen, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound senior from Montclair, New Jersey, continues to collect multiple honors. On Monday, Allen was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year, first team All-SEC by the AP, and he won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, signifying National Defensive Player of the Year.


Allen is a finalist for the Walter Camp National Player of the Year, the Butkus Award, the Chuck Bednarik Award,  the Lott IMPACT Trophy, and the Ted Hendricks Award.
