Thomas on Watch List for Paul Hornung Award

Posted Jul 5, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Oregon all-purpose standout De’Anthony Thomas has been named to the 2013 Paul Hornung Award watch list as announced Friday by the Louisville Sports Commission.

The award is given annually to college football’s most versatile player and is named after Louisville native and former Green Bay Packers’ NFL Hall-of-Fame running back Paul Hornung.

It marks the second straight year Thomas has been nominated for the award as he is one of only four players from the Pac-12 Conference among the 44 players nationally to appear on the award’s initial watch list.

Thomas was one of only two players in the country a year ago to run for over 700 yards, gain more than 400 yards receiving and accumulate over 600 yards in punt and kickoff returns. The Los Angeles junior led the Ducks in receptions (45 for 445 yards), punt returns (222 yards) and kickoff returns (389 yards) last season, tying for 29th in the nation (and fifth in the Pac-12) in all-purpose yards (135.2 avg.).

He also finished fourth in the conference with 18 touchdowns.
