LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The 6th annual Paul Hornung Award was handed out to Stanford's Christian McCaffrey Thursday night at the Galt House Hotel.
The Award is named after the Louisville native and one-time Notre Dame and Green Bay Packer star to the nation's most verstatile player, and McCaffrey more than fits the bill.
The Sophomore set an NCAA single-season record with 3,864 all-purpose yards. He played running back, slot receiver and return specialist. McCaffrey had a memorable couple of days in the Commonwealth, pointing out trips to the Muhammad Ali Museum, the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and one-on-one visits with Hornung and with reigning Triple Crown champion American Pharoah.
David Baker, the President of the Pro Football Hall of Fame was the guest speaker.
Others in attendance included Owen Marecic, the winner of the first Paul Hornung Award, 2011 winner Brandon Boykin and 2015 winner Shaq Thompson. U of L quarterback Lamar Jackson was also there to receive the 2015 Howard Schnellenberger Award given to the MVP of the U of L-UK football game.
