LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky walk-on Steven Duff made it on ESPN's Sportscenter Wednesday for simply doing the same thing he's been doing the past several years during the Kentucky football team's annual fall camp pool party.

Duff's daredevil diving Tuesday was captured by the UK Athletics video department and posted online. It found its way to ESPN and made No. 10 on Sportscenter's top plays of the night.

The 330-pound offensive lineman from Louisville's Pleasure Ridge Park high school said that he and his teammates were eating breakfast on campus Thursday morning when they saw the footage of him plunging into the pool popped up on the TV monitors.

Duff said the entire dining hall erupted.

Duff has been a practice player for the Cats since walking-on in 2009.
