Levi Norwood named to Paul Hornung Award Watch List

You know him for electrifying punt returns, surehandedness from the receiver position, and hair that knows no quit. Maybe next you'll know him as the winner of the Paul Hornung Award!

This actually happened yesterday and I totally missed it because it's not one of the more well-known awards, so we're just getting to it now.

In case you're not familiar with the criteria for this award, a totally forgivable state of being:

The Paul Hornung Award, now in its fifth 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 Golden Boy.

I'm fairly sure Levi Norwood's middle name is Versatile.  He catches passes, returns punts and kicks, catches even more passes ... the guy does it all.  He'd probably coach special teams if we ever decided to go that direction.  Come to think of it, that's actually something we should probably consider should things not work out in the NFL...

Anyway, he's on the Watch List.  You can see the others at the link above.
