Georgia senior Brandon Boykin was honored Feb. 2 as winner of the 2011 Paul Hornung Award, presented by Texas Roadhouse.

More than 600 people gathered at the sold-out Paul Hornung Award Banquet, presented by Jewish Hospital Sports Medicine, held at the Galt House in downtown Louisville.

“It’s an amazing accomplishment,” said Boykin. “I found out that I won in early January. It means a lot to me and I am very excited to be here with Mr. Hornung tonight. It’s a great honor.”

In addition, NFL legend Mike Ditka addressed the crowd and University of Louisville senior Dexter Heyman was honored as the 2011 winner of the Howard Schnellenberger Award for his MVP performance in the annual game between University of Louisville and University of Kentucky.

Other dignitaries in attendance for the evening’s event included Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, Georgia head coach Mark Richt, Louisville assistant coach Vance Bedford, 2010 Paul Hornung Award winner Owen Marecic (Cleveland Browns), Frank Minnifield and Paul Hornung Award selection committee members Christine Brennan (USA Today), Will Wolford (NFL All-Pro) and Gil Brandt (NFL.com).
