Now in its sixth season, The Paul Hornung Award is one of the top honors a major college football player can earn.
The award, which is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football by the Louisville Sports Commission and football legend and Louisville native Paul Hornung is sponsored by Texas Roadhouse.
The 2015 list was compiled by a group of football experts based on the combination of 2014 statistics, career performance and recommendations by sports information directors with expectations heading into the 2015 season.
Last season Shelton played in 13 games, including two starts and ranked third on the Spartans in all-purposed yards with 1,114.
Last year University of Washington's Shaq Thompson was awarded the honor and this year the winner and his family will be honored at the annual Paul Hornung Award Banquet to be held at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville in February 2016.
