AMES,
Iowa – Iowa State senior running back Aaron Wimberly has been named to the
preseason watch list for the 2014 Paul Hornung Award, presented by Texas
Roadhouse.

Beginning
in 2010, the award is given annually to the most versatile, high-level
performer in major college football. The award is named after Paul Hornung, who
is a member of both the College Football and Pro Football Hall of Fames.



Wimberly
enters his senior season as one of ISU’s most dynamic offensive players,
leading the team in rushing (567) and yards per carry (4.0) in 2013 despite
missing two games due to injuries. Wimberly also caught 18 passes for 211
yards.



A
native of Snellville, Ga., Wimberly was named to a number of preseason All-Big
12 lists by national magazines. He had a pair of 100-yard rushing games in
2013, including a career-best 137 yards at Tulsa en route to Big 12
Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors.
