ODU’s Antonio Vaughan named to Paul Hornung Award Watch List

odu logoOld Dominion University senior Antonio Vaughan has been named to the preseason watch list for the 2014 Paul Hornung Award, presented by Texas Roadhouse, the award committee announced on Monday.

The Paul Hornung Award is given annually by the Louisville Sports Commission (LSC) to the most versatile player in major college football. The Award was created by the LSC in January 2010 with the support of the Golden Boy himself, Paul Hornung, a native and lifelong resident of Louisville and member of the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame.

A native of Ahoskie, N.C., Vaughan caught 60 passes last season for 843 yards while catching nine touchdown passes.  He also rushed 28 times for 92 yards and a touchdown, with most of that coming from a 16 carry, 70-yard performance at Pittsburgh in which he started his first career game at running back.

In his career, Vaughan is second in school history with 167 receptions for 2,248 yards and 21 touchdown receptions.  He also has 38 kickoff returns for 712 yards while returning 12 punts for 132 yards and a touchdown.  In 2012, he returned a kick a career-best 83 yards in ODU’s thrilling 64-61 victory over New Hampshire, and later that season returned a punt 70 yards in the defeat of William and Mary.

The Paul Hornung Award was started in 2010 to recognize and reward versatile, high-level performers in major college football (Football Bowl Subdivision team member).  Previous winners are LSU’s Odell Beckham, West Virginia’s Tavon Austin, Georgia’s Brandon Boykin and Stanford’s Owen Marecic.
