Tennessee senior defensive back and kick returner Evan Berry’s versatility on the football field gained some recognition Monday.
The Louisville Sports Commission named Berry to the Paul Hornung Award watch list. The Paul Hornung Award was first issued in 2010 and honors the most versatile player in college football each year.
Berry makes the list along with 22 other seniors, 19 juniors and 3 sophomores.
Berry scored a touchdown and averaged 32.9 yards on 14 kick returns last season. The Fairburn, Ga., native returned 3 kickoffs for touchdowns and racked up 38.3 yards per return in 2015.
As a defensive back, Berry managed 12 tackles (1 for loss) in 2016.
SEC Media members named Berry to the All-SEC second-team as a return specialist last week. Athlon Sports named Berry a second-team All-American for the upcoming season in June.
