West Virginia senior Tavon Austin is the winner of the 2012 Paul Hornung Award, honoring the most versatile player in major college football.

Austin, who finished as WVU's career leader in receptions, receiving yards and all-purpose yards, was one of two players in the nation with more than 500 yards in three different statistical categories (rushing, receiving and kick returns).

Austin is expected to be selected among the first two rounds in the upcoming NFL Draft.
