Travis Hunter adds to impressive 2023 campaign with Paul Hornung Award
Travis Hunter had his list of accolades grow on Wednesday as he took home the Paul Hornung Award.
The award annually goes to the most versatile player in college football. The recipient has to be a 2-way player on either offense, defense, or special teams.
Hunter exemplifies what it means to be versatile.
Hunter spent time playing both receiver and defensive back for the Colorado Buffaloes this year. He finished 2nd on the team with 721 receiving yards. On defense he accounted for 30 total tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and 3 interceptions.

The award is staying in the Pac-12 for the 2nd consecutive year. Oregon State’s Jack Colletto won the trophy last season as a contributor in the running game and at linebacker.
Hunter is winning trophies like this during his 1st season in Boulder. The sky is the limit for what he can achieve during the remainder of his college career.
The Buffaloes ended the season at 4-8 under Deion Sanders in year 1 and missed out on a bowl game.
