USF wide receiver/kick returner Terrence Horne Jr. received national recognition for his spectacular performance in the Bulls’ 49-38 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday, being named the AAC Special Teams Player of the Week and a selectee to this week’s Paul Hornung Award honor roll.

The Hornung Award is awarded annually by the Louisville Sports Commission to the most versatile player in FBS.

Horne, a true freshman from Miramar, became the first FBS player to return two kick returns for touchdowns since Cal’s Trevor Davis did it vs. Washington State in 2014.

His touchdown reception in the fourth quarter also brought USF back to within one score of the Yellow Jackets as they mounted their fourth quarter comeback.

Joining Horne as this week’s Hornung Award honorees were Penn State’s KJ Hamler and TCU’s KaVontae Turpin.

Quarterback Blake Barnett also received conference recognition for his effort in the victory, being named to the AAC Honor Roll for a second straight week.
