​Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen had a fantastic senior year, earning him nominations as a finalist for several college football awards, including the ​Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and the ​Butkus Award


On Monday, Allen was honored with the Bronko Nagurski Trophy.

​​In 12 games this season, Allen registered 84 tackles, including 14 sacks and 18.5 tackles for a loss. He also forced five fumbles and had two fumble recoveries. By winning the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, he ended a drought of almost 70 years for his school by becoming the first Kentucky football player to win an award since 1950.  

​​Allen is projected to be selected early in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft. Assuming he's able to stay healthy, he looks like he has a bright future ahead. His future pro team can only hope he's as good in the NFL has he's been with Kentucky.
