The honors continue to roll in for all-purpose star Lynn Bowden and punter Max Duffy.
A week after, Bowden was named the Paul Hornung Award winner, and Duffy took home the Ray Guy Award; both have been names AP first-team All-Americans.
This marks the second straight season Kentucky has had multiple AP All-Americans as last season offensive tackle Bunchy Stallings, and outside linebacker Josh Allen both made the list.
Bowden made the cut as the all-purpose player. He started the season at his natural wide receiver position where he racked a team-high 348 receiving yards and caught a touchdown pass. After injuries to Terry Wilson and Sawyer Smith, Bowden moved to the quarterback position where he led the Wildcats to a 5-2 record by rushing for 1,235 yards and 11 touchdowns while adding 330 passing yards and two touchdown passes.
As for Duffy, he averaged 48.6 yards per punt and hit several of the nation’s longest boots with punts of 70, 69, 66, 63, and 62 yards over the course of the season.
Duffy even had a successful 26-yard run on a fake punt and recorded a tackle during the season.
