Cornelius Named to Hornung Award Watch List

Tar Heels vs Cavaliers

With two more punt return touchdowns Ryan Switzer’s name would stand alone in the NCAA record book

Pitt sophomore defensive back Jordan Whitehead earned a spot on his fourth 2016 award watch list Friday, the most of any Panther so far.

Adoree' Jackson will get another crack at bringing the Paul Hornung Award to USC in 2016 after being named to the 2016 watch list.

The Paul Hornung Award, now in its seventh season, is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission and football legend and Louisville native Paul Hornung. Holloway also accounted for seven touchdowns - five receiving, one rushing and one kick return.

Once again, the UCLA football team has another player name to a preseason watchlist. The victor is to be honored at the annual Paul Hornung Award Banquet in February of 2017.

There's no denying that Ryen is Iowa State's most versatile player. He finished with 1,266 all-purpose yards in 2015, and this year the team plans to use him primarily as a receiver. He won the 1956 Heisman Trophy at quarterback for Notre Dame and was the number one pick in the 1957 National Football League draft.

The Iowan also handled duties as a punt returner, averaging 15.5 yards per punt and kickoff returning duties while he averaged 17.9 yards per return. While in the NFL, Hornung was a multi-threat offensive back and prolific kicker.
