Penn State's Saquon Barkley wins Paul Hornung Award for his versatility

"I am so appreciative of Mr. Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission for selecting me for this very special honor", Barkley said in a statement.

Barkley ranks second in the Football Bowl Subdivision in all-purpose yards with 179.5 per game and is tied for fifth in the FBS with 21 touchdowns, 16 rushing, three receiving and two on kickoff returns.

Penn State Nittany Lions junior running back Saquon Barkley has won the Paul Hornung Award, which is a distinction given to the nation's most versatile player, according to college football insider Brett McMurphy.

Barkley also completed two passes for 36 yards, one of which went for a touchdown. "I have to give a lot of the credit to my teammates and coaches". He is the second player in Big Ten history to win three major conference awards, joining last year's Paul Hornung Award victor, Michigan's Jabrill Peppers (Defensive Player of the Year, Linebacker of the Year, Return Specialist of the Year). I could not have done it without them.

Barkley may want to wait until after Penn State's bowl game to make an announcement. He was chosen over Washington wide receiver Dante Pettis, Iowa State linebacker Joel Lanning and NC State running back Nyheim Hines by a panel of 17 voters and one fan vote.

Barkley's coach, James Franklin, said he has "never coached or seen a player who can affect the game the way Saquon Barkley does".

Last season, Barkley had his most explosive year as a rusher, racking up 1,496 yards and 18 scores.

The Whitehall High graduate also became the first Big Ten player to win running back, returner and offensive player-of-the-year awards. The winners of those awards will be announced Thursday.
