BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana senior wide receiver Shane Wynn, the first player in Indiana history with receiving (17), punt return (one), kick return (one) and rushing (one) scores in his career, was named to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List, the Louisville Sports Commission announced Monday. The Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse is presented annually to the most versatile player in college football.
Ranked third at Indiana in kick return yardage (1,610), tied for fifth in receiving touchdowns (17), tied for eighth in catches (133), 10th in all-purpose yardage (3,270) and 17th in receiving yardage (1,490), Wynn enters his final season at IU as one of the top wideouts in the Big Ten.
The Cleveland native is first among active B1G wide receivers with 20 career touchdowns (tied for ninth nationally), second with 133 receptions (18th) and 17 receiving touchdowns (tied for 11th) and third with 1,490 yards.
The 18th Hoosier to reach 100 catches and 1,000 yards, Wynn is coming off a junior season in which he finished second in the conference and tied for 19th nationally with 11 receiving touchdowns. The speedster added one rushing and a 58-yard punt return score for 13 total TDs, which led the team, shared fourth in the league and sits tied for sixth in school history.
Finalists from the 47-player list will be voted on by the Paul Hornung Award Selection Committee in late November and the winner will be announced in early December.
