Pharoh Cooper Named to Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll

Nov. 3, 2014

University of South Carolina sophomore wide receiver Pharoh Cooper was named to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll and was recognized as the College Football Performance Awards national Wide Receiver of the Week.

Cooper, a 5-11, 201-pounder from Havelock, N.C., had 256 all-purpose yards – the most for the Gamecocks this year – and accounted for four touchdowns in a heartbreaking 45-42 two-overtime loss to Tennessee in Columbia. Cooper ran for a score in the first quarter, threw a TD pass in the second and had TD receptions in the third and fourth quarters. His 233 receiving yards are a single-game school record and his 11 receptions are a career-best. Cooper ran for 23 yards on three carries, threw a 30-yard TD pass and recovered a fourth-quarter onside kick by the Volunteers.

The announcement was made by the Louisville Sports Commission, owners and operators of the Paul Hornung Award, presented by Texas Roadhouse and given annually to the most versatile player in major college football. The winner and his family will be honored on January 27, 2015, at a banquet presented by KentuckyOne Health at the Galt House Hotel and Suites in downtown Louisville.
