Catalon Named to Hornung Award Watch List
July 7, 2014
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- TCU tailback B.J. Catalon has been named to the watch list for the 2014 Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse.
The Paul Hornung Award recognizes the nation's most versatile player.
A junior from Houston, Catalon was one of four players nationally last season with both a rushing touchdown and kickoff return for a touchdown.
Catalon was a second-team Academic All-Big 12 honoree last year. He ran for 569 yards to become the first Horned Frog to top TCU in rushing in back-to-back seasons since Joseph Turner from 2007-09. Catalon totaled six rushing touchdowns while leading TCU tailbacks with 11 receptions.
Catalon was honorable-mention All-Big 12 as a kickoff returner, when he placed second in the conference and 16th nationally with his 26.5 return average. His 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against LSU gave TCU at least one punt or kickoff return for a score in six of the last seven seasons. The 100-yard return also tied for second longest in TCU history while setting an AT&T Stadium record for a collegiate game.
TCU All-American Jeremy Kerley, now with the New York Jets, was a 2010 finalist for the Hornung Award.
