Tulsa tailback on preseason Hornung watch list

TULSA — A Tulsa football player has been named to the Paul Hornung Award Watch List.

Officials said Thursday tailback and kick returner Trey Watts was among those being considered for the honor, which is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football. Watts is one of 49 named to the preseason list.

The 5-foot, 11-inch junior led the Golden Hurricane in all-purpose yardage last year with 1,629 yards, an average of 125.3 yards per game. Watts rushed for 881 yards and caught 31 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns.

He is only one of three players from Conference USA schools to be selected for the list.

The winner of the 2012 Paul Hornung Award will be chosen in early January following the bowl season.
