Inaugural Award Listing For Sanders

West Virginia's versatile Jock Sanders might be just what the founders of the Paul Hornung Award had in mind when they created the new trophy for this year.

Jock Sanders is one of 48 players nominated for the newly-created award. The list, which will be updated throughout the season, includes players who have excelled in more than one phase of the game over the course of their careers.

Sanders, who touches the ball as a receiver, running back and punt returner, has just the breadth of skill that matches the criteria for the award.

"Paul Hornung was a playmaker and the spirit of the Paul Hornung Award is to recognize versatile, high-level performers who make an impact on the game," said Karl Schmitt, executive director of the Louisville Sports Commission. "The Watch List is a work in progress, and we are particularly pleased from the outset to draw attention to almost two dozen individuals that have not received recognition with other awards."

Joining Sanders on the watch list are Doug Beaumont of Louisville and Mohamed Sanu of Rutgers.

Players from all FBS teams are eligible. Appearing on the Watch List is not a prerequisite for winning the Award. The Selection Committee will narrow the field to approximately 10-15 Finalists at the end of the regular season in early December then will select the winner at or near the end of the bowl season in early January. The Paul Hornung Award Banquet will be held in late January at the Galt House in downtown Louisville.
