Texarkana's own Dennis Johnson, already named to the All SEC Pre-season list, is now on the watch list for the award given to the country's most versatile player.



DJ enters the 2012 season as the SEC's active career leader in all-purpose yards (4,014), kickoff return yards (2,475) and total return yards (2,475). He's tied for fourth on the SEC's all-time career list with three kick return touchdowns.

The winner of the Paul Hornung Award will be announced in January after the bowl season has ended.
