LOUISVILLE, KY (WALB) -

Georgia Bulldog WR Malcolm Mitchell proved last season he was one of the most versatile players in college football.

Now, he may awarded for his efforts.

The former Valdosta Wildcat was one of 44 players named to the Paul Hornung Award watch list Friday.

The Hornung Award is given each year to college football's most versatile player.

Mitchell earned his spot on the watch list after a 2012 season, where he was a factor in all three facets of the game.

Offensively, the junior receiver was third on the team with 572 receiving yards and 10 TDs.

Mitchell also played four games at defensive back, and returned kicks on special teams.

He was given the Charley Trippi Award in 2012, given to UGA's most versatile player.

Mitchell is hoping to become the second Bulldog to win the Hornung Award.

Former DB Brandon Boykin won the award in 2011.

The Paul Hornung Award will be given out in late January 2014.
