What a year it's been for Rondale Moore. 

Starting as a true freshman, scoring two touchdowns in his first college game, leading Purdue to an upset over Ohio State. Now, he's a Paul Hornung Award winner. 

The award is presented to the most versatile player in college football. That definitely suits Moore. He finished the regular season with 103 catches for 1,164 yards and 12 touchdowns, 1 rushing touchdown on 200 yards rushing, and was the team's primary punt and kick returner. 

Past winners of the Paul Hornung Award include Saquon Barkley, Jabrill Peppers, and Christian McCaffrey. 

Not only did he bring home that award, but he was also named 1st team All-America as a return specialist by The Athletic.  

Brohm staying. Moore for at least two more years. Get off the tracks, Big Ten. Brohm Squad coming through.
