Benny Snell reveals how Heisman hype has helped him at Waffle House
It’s good to be Benny Snell Jr. these days.
The Kentucky star running back is fresh off a four-touchdown performance against Mississippi State and is starting to get some legitimate Heisman hype.
What’s been the best benefit of being one of the nation’s top running backs? Snell said he now gets recognized by Waffle House employees:
Snell said he goes to the Waffle House, and that the employees didn’t know him before, but they do now.

How he wasn’t getting recognized well before now is ridiculous, as he’s a back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher — no easy task in the SEC.
If Snell keeps running the way he’s running this year, he may get some sort of waffle named after him before all is said and done.
