USF’s Terrence Horne earns conference, national honors

Less than 48 hours after his mesmerizing kick-return exhibition against Georgia Tech, Bulls freshman Terrence Horne received his first formal accolades.

The American Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week, and a spot on the Paul Hornung Award's Week Two honor roll.

The Hornung Award is presented annually awarded to the most versatile player in major college football.

Horne thrust himself into local folk-hero status, becoming only the 25th player in NCAA history to return two kickoffs for touchdowns in the same game. His 264 return yards — highlighted by the 98- and 97-yard scoring returns in the first quarter — were a school single-game record.

Horne's TDs occurred on his second and third returns of the afternoon. He nearly broke loose on the game's opening kick but was tripped up at his 34.

"My teammate, Deangelo Antoine, he told me after the first one when I got tripped up a little bit, to slow down and follow him," said Horne, who also had a short TD catch in the fourth period. "I followed him, and I just broke through and then I scored."

On his third return, he encountered a wall of teammates and defenders near the 20, bounced outside to his left and dashed for his second TD. "I followed my teammates again," he said.

More recognition — on a national level — could arrive for Horne as early as this afternoon.
