BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Junior wide receiver Tandon Doss has been recognized as "Paul Hornung's Most Versatile Performances of the Week," it was announced Monday by Paul Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission.

Doss also set a career high with 363 all-purpose yards, adding 21 rushing yards, 111 on kickoff returns and 10 on punt returns while taking two snaps out of the Wildcat formation.
On the season, Doss is averaging 107.7 yards per game and owns 23 catches for 323 yards (203 yards after catch, 62.8 percent), one touchdown and 14.0 yards per catch. He is averaging 211.0 all-purpose yards and 31.2 kick return yards per game. Doss has three career games with 200-plus all-purpose yards and seven with 150-plus all-purpose yards.
