Broyles on Paul Hornung Award Watch List

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma receiver Ryan Broyles has been named to the 2010 Paul Hornung watch list released by The Louisville Sports Commission. In its first year, the award will be presented to the most versatile player in college football. The list, comprised of 48 players, was compiled by a panel of college football experts based on 2009 statistics and expectations heading into the 2010 season.

The Sooners top returning receiver, Broyles set an Oklahoma record with 89 receptions in 2009 and tied the school mark with 15 receiving TDs. Broyles also ranked fourth nationally with a 15.87 punt return average. The MVP of the Sun Bowl with 13 receptions for 156 yards and three touchdowns, Broyles finished the season with 1,120 receiving yards, third best in OU history.

The Hornung Award is the third award to name Broyles to its watch list in the past week as he was previously named to the watch lists for the Biletnikoff and Maxwell Awards. (SoonerSports.com)
