CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Old Dominion University football junior Antonio Vaughan was named to the College Football Performance Award punt returner Watch List, the CFPA announced on Tuesday.
Vaughan, a native of Ahoskie, N.C., returned just seven punts in 2012, but he averaged 13.1 yards per return and delivered a 70-yard touchdown to put the Monarchs up for good in the regular-season home finale victory, 38-28, over William and Mary.
The junior is also ODU’s leading returning receiver, catching 60 passes for 885 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
