Ohio State Football: Dontre Wilson named to 2014 Paul Hornung Award Watch List


The 2014 college football season is right around the corner, and more evidence of that has been the rolling out on Monday of the preseason award watch lists, of which there are expected to be many Ohio State players named.

One of the first watch lists that was unveiled on Monday was the Paul Hornung Award, given to the nation’s most versatile athlete. On this list, the named of Buckeyes’ running back Dontre Wilson just happened to pop up.

As a freshman last season, Wilson certainly showed that he is indeed one of the best athletes in the country, rushing for 250 yards and one score, while adding in 210 yards receiving and two scores.

He was no slouch in the special teams games, neither, returning 21 kicks for 523 yards.
