The football Cats needed a senior leader this season on defense...and so far have found it in linebacker Avery Williamson.
Wesley Woodyard, Danny Trevathan, and now even Williamson are guys you may not have expected to be big-time linebackers in Lexington...but who stepped up and answered the bell every season to replace the guy before him.
Williamson has 35 total tackles on the year...and leads the Southeastern Conference.
Which has head coach Mark Stoops pretty happy with the effort from his senior leader.
More from Stoops in the video.
