BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - For the second time this season, Indiana junior wide receiver Tandon Doss has been recognized with one of "Paul Hornung's Most Versatile Performances of the Week," Paul Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission announced. The weekly award honorees highlight elite performances from the previous week in college football that display the same versatility on the field as the legendary Paul Hornung.
Doss, who earned his first honor following the Michigan game, eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the sixth time in his career, which is tied for the fifth most in school history, and posted at least eight receptions for the eighth time with 103 yards, eight grabs and one score against Arkansas State. He added 121 kick return yards and 17 yards on four carries to finish with 241 all-purpose yards, the third-highest total of his career, the fourth time in the last eight games he has surpassed 200 and the fifth time in the last eight games he has surpassed 150.
A member of the Hornung and Biletnikoff Award Watch Lists, Doss ranks first nationally in all-purpose yards (202.0), shares 18th in receptions (6.4), and ranks 22nd in receiving yards (87.6) and in kickoff returns (27.8). He is the only player in the country to rank in the top 25 in each of these categories.
On the season, Doss owns 32 catches for 438 yards (271 yards after catch, 61.9 percent), two touchdowns and 13.7 yards per catch. He has four career games with 200-plus all-purpose yards and eight with 150-plus all-purpose yards. Doss has surpassed 100 APY 12 times in his last 14 games and 14 times overall in his career. He has accounted for 19 20-plus yard plays this season, including 13 kick returns and six receptions.
Additionally, Doss garnered spots on Phil Steele's All-American team as a wide receiver (third team) and All-Big Ten team as a wide receiver (first team) and a kick returner (second team).
