Ellington Added to Hornung Award Watch List

Oct. 29, 2010

LOUISVILLE, KY – After recording 257 all-purpose yards, Clemson’s Andre Ellington has been added to the weekly “Paul Hornung’s Most Versatile Performances of the Week.” The addition was announced Wednesday by Paul Hornung and the Louisville Sports Commission.

The weekly award honorees highlight elite performances from the previous week in college football that display the same versatility on the field as the legendary Paul Hornung. Ellington joins Brandon Boykin (Georgia), Owen Marecic (Stanford), Niles Paul (Nebraska) and Trent Richardson (Alabama) as winners for week eight of the college football season.

Ellington’s performance gave him a career-high in rushing yards (166) and all-purpose yards (257). His rushing and all-purpose totals were the highest by a Clemson player since C.J. Spiller had 233 yards rushing and 301 all-purpose yards against Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship game last year in Tampa.

In addition to 166 rushing yards, Ellington had two catches for 12 yards and three kick returns for 79 yards.
