Todd Gurley Named to Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll

Georgia junior tailback Todd Gurley is one of four players nationwide who has been named to the Paul Hornung Award’s Weekly Honor Roll for his game-changing versatility during the Bulldogs’ 45-21 win over #16 Clemson.

Gurley has already been named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week and split the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Week honor with Texas A&M’s Kenny Hill. In addition, he has been named the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) National All-Purpose Performer of the Week and the National Kickoff Returner of the Week.

Former Bulldog and current Philadelphia Eagle Brandon Boykin won the 2011 Paul Hornung Award.

Gurley, a Tarboro, N.C., finished with a school record 293 all-purpose yards (former record 290, Rodney Hampton, 1987) and scored four touchdowns to help down the Tigers. He finished with his 14th career 100-yard rushing game after going for a career-high 198 yards and three scores on just 15 carries (13.2 average). His final carry was a 51-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.

Gurley also tied an NCAA record by returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. This marked his second career 100-yard return for a score after he returned one against Buffalo during his first game as a Bulldog in 2012. Boykin, a cornerback/returner, had three 100-yard returns during his time at Georgia.

Georgia (1-0, 0-0 SEC) has a bye week before traveling to Columbia, S.C., to face South Carolina (0-1, 0-1) on Sept. 13. CBS will televise the game at 3:30 p.m.
