Penn State Football true sophomore running back Nick Singleton was added to the Paul Hornung Award watch list, the award given to the “most versatile player in major college football”.
The former five-star prospect out of Reading, Pennsylvania started eight games and played in all 13 games as a true freshman for Penn State in 2022.
In addition to playing out of the backfield for Penn State Football, Singleton was also Penn State’s kick returner, returning 14 kicks for 349 yards, including a 100-yard kick return touchdown against Rutgers.
With his ability to return kicks and rush and catch passes out of the backfield, Singleton has proven his ability as a versatile player for the Nittany Lions and his addition to the Paul Hornung Award watch list is well deserved.

With first-year starting quarterback Drew Allar at the helm, Penn State fans should expect to see more passes out of the backfield, getting Singleton more involved in the passing game than he was last year.
In addition to the Paul Hornung Award watch list, Singleton was added to the Maxwell Award watch list, presented annually to the “best player in college football”.
