LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Purdue University wide receiver and Trinity graduate Rondale Moore is the winner of the 2018 Paul Hornung Award. The award is given to the nation's most versatile college football player.
Moore, a freshman wide receiver at Purdue University, set the school record for most all-purpose yards in a game in his first career game. He also won Big Ten Receiver of the Year and Freshman of the Year.
In Purdue's biggest win of the season against then #2-ranked Ohio State, Moore had 252-all-purpose-yards and two touchdowns.
Moore was chosen from five finalists: Marcus Green (Louisiana-Monroe), KJ Hamler (Penn State), N'Keal Harry (Arizona State) and Connor Heyward (Michigan State).
Moore is the ninth recipient of the prestigious award.
He and his family will be honored on March 7, 2019.
Last year, Moore was honored as the Paul Hornung High School Award winner by the Louisville Quarterback Club. That honor goes to the state's best football player.
