Kentucky, Lexington Herald Leader, scores two of AP's most important postseason SEC football prizes

Kentucky's Mark Stoops is the coach of the year in the Southeastern Conference and Cats linebacker Josh Allen is the defensive player of the league of the year, according to the Associated Press.

Allen joins the AP's first SEC team, running Benny Snell back and guarding Bunchy Stallings. Security in the UK Mike Edwards received the second team award.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is the offensive player of the year and one of five members of high-profile Crimson Tide, who receives the award for the first team. Vanderbilt's Ke'Shawn Vaughn was named Newcomer of the Year.

Stoops took over the Kentucky program in 2013 and has continually improved the cats every season. This year's 9-3 season campaign, which has garnered most of the profits for a Kentucky team since 1984. Stoops joins Paul Bryant (1950), Fran Curci (1977) and Jerry Claiborne (1984) as British coaches who have received the AP award.

A panel of 28 writers and broadcasters responsible for the SEC voted in favor of the AP's All-SEC team.

Also on Monday, Allen was named one of four finalists for the Ted Hendricks Award, which honors the nation's highest defensive end. Other finalists for this award include Jaylon Ferguson (Louisiana Tech), Clelin Ferrell (Clemson) and Sutton Smith (Northern Illinois). The winner will be announced on Thursday.

The 17th annual award is based, among other things, on field performance, leadership and contributions to the school and community. The award honors Hendricks, a three-time All-American in Miami and the National Football League Hall of Famer.

Allen, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound linebacker, has 28.5 career sacks and 14 sacks in 2018 and holds British career and one-year records. His eleven career forced him to win former Wildcat and current Chicago Bear defender Danny Trevathan for his career.

This is the second selection of the first AP All-SEC team for Benny Snell, who became an all-time Cats leader this season. Snell is second in the SEC and crashed in 263 attempts at 1,305 yards.

Stallings, a 6-3 senior, was a key component of Cats's offensive line, which helped Snell to three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. UK finished sixth in the SEC this season.

Edwards, a 6-0 senior, was the season's second table contender this season with 77, followed by two interceptions and a hectic recovery.
