UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Penn State running back Saquon Barkley (Coplay, Pa.) added to his growing list of accolades for the 2017 season after being named to the Paul Hornung Award Week 2 Honor Roll. Barkley was one of five players honored by the Hornung Award, which is given to the most versatile player in major college football.
