Western Kentucky senior running back Bobby Rainey has grabbed more national pub this morning by landing on the Paul Hornung Award watch list.

Rainey – part of a group that includes 20 seniors, 20 juniors and 10 sophomores – lands on the Hornung list for the second straight year.

The award – which is given by the Louisville Sports Commission – goes to the country’s most versatile player in college football.

Rainey is the only player from the state of Kentucky to land on the list, and is joined in representing the Sun Belt by  T.Y. Hilton of Florida International and Jyruss Edwards of Louisiana-Monroe.

The WKU senior running back is also on the Maxwell Award watch list, as well as the Doak Walker Award watch list.
