One of the most versatile and dynamic players in college football, Adams leads the country with three punt return touchdowns and an average of 16.19 yards per punt return. In addition to Arkansas, only two other teams in the country have returned three punts for touchdowns this season. Adams, who also has three receiving touchdowns and scored on a 92-yard touchdown rush against Auburn, is the only player in the NCAA with rushing, receiving and multiple punt return touchdowns in 2011.

Adams ranks fourth in the SEC with an average of 4.1 receptions per game and is sixth in the conference with 52.5 receiving yards per game. The Little Rock, Ark., native ranks second on Arkansas’ all-time career receptions list with 159

His career total of four punt return touchdowns is tied for the lead among all active players nationally and tied for fourth all-time in the SEC. Adams ranks tied for second on the SEC’s single-season punt return touchdown list, one behind the conference’s single-season record.

The 5’9, 190-pound senior and is a graduate of Central Arkansas Christian High School. He has earned four letters as a Razorback.

The other finalists up for the award, which goes to the most versatile player in major college football, are Brandon Boykin from Georgia, LaMichael James from Oregon and Toledo’s Eric Page. Fans can vote online at www.votepaulhornung.com for the winner. The Hornung Award winner will be announced following the bowl games, and Arkansas’ AT&T Cotton Bowl game on Jan. 6 is the latest featuring a finalist. The winner will be honored on Feb. 2, 2012, at the Galt House in downtown Louisville during the annual Paul Hornung Award banquet, sponsored by Jewish Hospital Sports Medicine.

Last season, Stanford fullback/linebacker Owen Marecic won the inaugural Paul Hornung Award.
