LEXINGTON (LEX 18) — Former Kentucky running back Benny Snell Jr. was back in Lexington Tuesday to host a football camp at Lexington Catholic High School.

"I wish that I had this when I was little. I wish that I had someone that I grew up looking to," said Snell. "Where I'm from or wherever they went to college, get to look up to somebody and get to meet them, give a word of advice and to get some work in with them. That would've helped me come a long way when I was little."

The programs all-time leading rusher helped the campers with basic football drills. Each camper also received an autographed souvenir, a team photo with Benny, and a Benny Snell Jr. FlexCamp Sports T-Shirt.

Benny was assisted by some of his former teammates, and current Wildcats, Terry Wilson, Lynn Bowden Jr., and AJ Rose.

Snell was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 4th round of April's NFL Draft.
