Michigan running back and return specialist Blake Corum and Michigan State wide receiver and return specialist Jayden Reed represent the B1G in this week’s selections to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List.
Corum had 26 touches in three different ways during the Wolverines 31-10 win over Washington, scoring three times.
Reed also touched the ball in three different ways, with two touchdown receptions in the Spartan’s 42-14 home win over Youngstown State. Reed pulled in the 75-yard scoring pass on the first play from scrimmage for MSU, and then went on to catch an 85-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
In all, five players representing three different conferences were named, with Boise State wide receiver and return specialist Stefan Cobbs and Hawaii’s all-purpose back and return specialist Calvin Turner Jr. representing the Mountain West. Finally, Oregon State linebacker and wildcat quarterback Jack Colletto represented the Pac 12 on the weekly list.
The Paul Hornung Award is presented by Texas Roadhouse and is now in its 12th season. The award is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission and pays tribute to football legend and Louisville native Paul Hornung, who passed away in Nov. 2020.
