More postseason honors are rolling in for the Kentucky Wildcats.

On Wednesday, three Wildcats were named to the Coaches All-SEC teams. Lynn Bowden was named the top all-purpose player in the league, while punter Max Duffy and offensive guard Logan Stenberg were named to the second-team.

This comes after Bowden, Stenberg, Duffy and center Drake Jackson were named AP First-Team All-SEC selections. All three of them were instrumental in Kentucky having arguably the best rushing offense in all of college football, while Duffy leads the nation in punting at 48.6 yards per punt. He is also UK’s all-time leading career punter at 46.47 yards on 107 kicks.

In addition, Landon Young was voted captain of the 2019 Allstate AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) Good Works Team. Young was named a member of the team in September for his volunteer work in the community and abroad. Of the 22 Good Works Team members, Young received the honor of being named captain through fan voting that took place this season at ESPN.com/Allstate.

Young is Kentucky’s 15th player to be named to the Good Works Team and the school’s first player to be named captain. Among the services he’s done include working with Habitat for Humanity, Kentucky Children’s Hospital, Lexington’s Hope Center and Lexington Christian Church. He also volunteers at veterinary clinics and went on a one-week service trip to Ethiopia this past summer.
