At the annual Paul Hornung Award dinner in March 2021, the winner will be honored with his family at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville.
The Paul Hornung Award, now in its 11th season, is annually given to an all-around talented athlete in college football. The award is given by the Louisville Sports Commission and football legend Paul Hornung. It is presented by Texas Roadhouse.
