Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson was named to the Paul Hornung Award watch list. The award is given to the nation's most versatile player.

The Hornung Award is a relatively new accolade, first being awarded in 2010. Saquon Barkley won the trophy in 2017 thanks to his play at running back and in the return game.

Dotson caught 52 balls for a league-high 884 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He also returned eight punts for 197 yards and one touchdown.
