Georgia senior defensive back Brandon Boykin has been named the 2011 Paul Hornung Award winner as the nation’s most versatile player.

The 5-foot-10, 183-pound Bulldog started 38 career games for Georgia, including the last 22 in a row. Boykin is Georgia’s all-time leader in kickoff return yardage with 2,663 yards, which ranks second on the SEC’s all-time list, and he is the only player in SEC history with three 100-yard plays of any kind.

In addition, Boykin finished with four kickoff returns for 70 yards on his 110 career returns.

Boykin completed his Georgia career with 159 total tackles, 20 tackles for loss, nine interceptions, four kickoff returns for touchdowns and one punt return for a touchdown.

Boykin will now join three of his teammates at the 2012 Senior Bowl on Jan. 28 in Mobile, Ala., as he prepares for the NFL Draft.
