Quadree Henderson, Jordan Whitehead up for Paul Hornung Award

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Both Quadree Henderson and Jordan Whitehead found themselves on more preseason college football award watch lists on Monday. The pair was named to the list for the Paul Hornung Award, given to the most versatile player.

There's good reason to include both on the list, obviously. Whitehead was a two-way player for the Panthers that made plays on both offense and defense. He racked up 65 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown as a safety while carrying the ball nine times for 98 yards.

Henderson didn't play defense but made his mark as a wide receiver, running back, and a return man. He had four special teams touchdowns, had 60 carries for 631 yards, and also caught 26 passes for 286 yards. In addition to his four special teams scores, he had six combined rushing and receiving touchdowns.
