Three offensive skill position players who double as return specialists were named to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll in week eight of the college football season, and this included University of Virginia senior wide receiver/ kick return specialist Joe Reed, a Louisville Sports Commission press release stated Monday, Oct. 21.

The former Randolph-Henry High School multi-sport standout touched the ball three different ways Saturday, Oct. 19, racking up 179 all-purpose yards and scoring once in the Cavaliers’ 48-14 home win over Duke University, the release noted. Reed scored on a 95-yard kickoff return in the second quarter, had five receptions on the game for 45 yards — including three for first downs — returned a kickoff 43 yards and had one carry. Virginia is 5-2 on the season and atop the Atlantic Coastal Conference Coastal Division at 3-1.

Reed is up for the Paul Hornung Award, given annually to the most versatile player in major college football.

As stated at LouisvilleSports.org, “A national selection committee comprised of 17 sports journalists and former NFL stars votes for the Hornung Award winner, with YOUR fan vote comprising the 18th vote.”
