Today, the Louisville Sports Commission announced its preseason watch list for the Paul Hornung Award and UCLA’s Ishmael Adams was one of the forty-three student-athletes named to the award’s watch list.
The Paul Hornung Award, now in its seventh season, is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission and football legend and Louisville native Paul Hornung. The winner and his family will be honored at the annual Paul Hornung Award Banquet presented by KentuckyOne Health, to be held at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville in February 2017. The Paul Hornung Award recently was named an associate member of the prestigious National College Football Awards Association.
The Louisville Sports Commission launched the Paul Hornung Award in 2010 to honor its namesake and native son, and to promote outstanding performances by versatile college football players who often go unnoticed.
Last year’s winner was Stanford’s Christian McCaffery who is also on this year’s watch list.
Congratulations to Ish!
