Paul Hornung Award victor is Saquon Barkley

On Wednesday, while in Atlanta for the College Football Awards show Thursday night, Barkley told reporters that he will decide whether to enter the NFL Draft or return for his senior year at Penn State after the Fiesta Bowl.

The other finalists were Nyheim Hines of North Carolina State, Joel Lanning of Iowa State and Dante Pettis of Washington.

"I have to give a lot of credit to my teammates and coaches". He is the second player in Big Ten history to win three major conference awards, joining last year's Paul Hornung Award victor, Michigan's Jabrill Peppers (Defensive Player of the Year, Linebacker of the Year, Return Specialist of the Year).

"It is an honor to win this award", Barkley said in a statement released by Penn State.

PennLive's Bob Flounders, Greg Pickel and Dustin Hockensmith also talk Penn State football on the Keystone Sports Network.

In 12 games, he has carried the ball 199 times for 1,134 yards and 16 touchdowns while averaging 5.7 yards per attempt.

Barkley has even thrown a touchdown pass this season and has completed both of his pass attempts. I couldn't be more proud of Saquon and everything he has accomplished at Penn State. "But me, I will play in a bowl game".

Barkley has received several honors in the last two weeks.

The Whitehall High graduate also became the first Big Ten player to win running back, returner and offensive player-of-the-year awards.

The award - named after 1956 Heisman Trophy victor and Notre Dame quarterback Paul Hornung - has been doled out since 2010.

Barkley is also a finalist for the Maxwell, Walter Camp and Doak Walker Awards.

Quarterback Trace McSorley, tight end Mike Gesicki, wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton and punter Blake Gillikin represented the Lions on the second team.
