Carter On Paul Hornung Award Watch List
Aug. 2, 2012
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter has been named to the watch list for the Paul Hornung Award, presented to the most versatile player in college football.
Former Horned Frog standout and current New York Jet Jeremy Kerley was a 2010 finalist for the Paul Hornung Award.
As a true freshman last season, Carter placed fourth on TCU with 23 receptions for 352 yards and three touchdowns. He posted his first career 100-yard game with four catches for 120 yards and two scores in a 36-35 win at Boise State. His 25-yard touchdown grab with 1:05 to play pulled TCU within 35-34 and set the stage for the Horned Frogs' 2-point pass for the go-ahead points. His 75-yard touchdown reception against the Broncos represented TCU's longest play from scrimmage in 2011.
Carter averaged a team-best 13.7 yards on punt returns last season, including a long of 43 yards.
A native of Euless, Texas, Carter is one of just eight sophomores on the 49-player watch list for the Paul Hornung Award.
