NFL great Jim Brown will be the featured speaker at this year’s Paul Hornung Award Banquet presented by KentuckyOne Health.

Brown was an All-American running back at Syracuse in the mid-1950s.

After college, Brown played his entire NFL career as a member of the Cleveland Browns. He was named NFL Rookie of the Year during the 1957 season. He also went on to be invited to the Pro Bowl in each of his nine seasons with the Browns.

This year’s banquet, which will recognize Penn St. running back Saquon Barkley as 2017’s “most versatile player in major college football,” will take place on Thursday, March 8 at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville.
