Congrats to Brandon Boykin for winning the Paul Hornung Award, given to the nation’s most versatile player.

Very much deserved award. I am proud for him.
Happy that he ended his college career with probably his best game. Too bad the team couldn’t follow suit and bring home the victory as well.
DGD. He will be missed for sure.
Excellent! Congrats to Brandon, and best of luck in the NFL. Damn good dawg!
DGD! Awesome! Congrats Brandon – very much deserved!
Congrats, BB! Well deserved!
Boykin was a great one. Proud for him to have been a Dawg!
Best of luck in the NFL Brandon. Tell those underclassmen to stay in school like you did!
Considering the competition in the Awards Finals, this is an outstanding honor for him and reflects well on UGA and the coaches’s utilization of him. Congratulations as MVP for his last college bowl game and for the records he set at UGA and the SEC follow him as well. His name will remain before us for some time.
I am happy for Boykin. That said, I always thought the Hornung Award was for being able to play at a high level with no rest after being out all night (1) gambling (2) getting drunk and (3) getting laid, in that order. That was the versatile part, supposedly.
I never got it and I excelled at all three of those.
Maybe that’s exactly why BB brought home the award, Mayor? I haven’t lived in Athens for a while now so I don’t hear the local rumors anymore…
All joking aside… BB was the epitome of a DGD. His play evokes the memories I had of watching Champ in his playing days and I hope nothing but the best for him at the next level. The Falcons would do well to grab him if he’s still around in the second round.
Adding to all his other awards, Harmon Wages gets the first “Good-Humor Man” Award for the year.
Yeah, but Boykin would never be touted as “The Golden Boy”.
Congratulation Brandon Boykin for winning the Hornung Award! Outstanding football player. His play was always at the top. An outstanding young man who truly earned the award. Will be missed, but work has been left in the great memories of Georgia football. Character, class, and courage…Brandon Boykin, a player for all decades. Thanks.
I have seen a lot of great players have great games. 2, your game against Michigan State had me shaking my head, it was a thing of beauty. Glad to see you win awards, hate to see you leave Athens.
Boykin was very vocal in his praise of UGA and the coaching staff. I couldn’t help smiling as I read them.
