Florida Atlantic senior TE Harrison Bryant has been named one of three finalists for the John Mackey Award, given to the nationís top collegiate tight end.
The other finalists are Washington junior Hunter Bryant and Miami (FL) sophomore Brevin Jordan.
Bryant ranks fifth in Conference USA in receptions (58) and second in receiving yards (890), with both of those figures tops among all FBS tight ends.
Bryant has posted multiple catches in each game and has six games with five or more grabs, including last Saturday at UTSA when he caught a game-high 10 passes for a career-best 192 yards and his third TD of the season.
The three finalists were determined by confidential balloting of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee.
Given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end, the 2019 John Mackey Award recipient will be announced on December 11, 2019 and presented live on December 12, 2019 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show at 6:00 PM on ESPNU.
All future announcements can be found at www.johnmackeyaward.com and on their official twitter account: @JohnMackeyAward.
NFL Hall of Fame member John Mackey is considered to be the best to have played the tight end position. A tight end by whom all others are measured, Mackey was a role model on and off the field as demonstrated by his Super Bowl Championship, his commitment to community and his place in history as the first President of the NFLPA.
Brevin Jordan (UM at 6-5) 35 receptions for 495 yards (14.1 av.) and 2 TD's
Hunter Bryant (Wash at 6-5) 46 receptions for 729 yards (15.8 av.) and 3 TD's
Harrison Bryant (FAU at 8-3) has 58 receptions for 890 yards (15.3 av.) and 3 TD's
So TD's are NOT an issue, in fact tied for lead.
If FAU can get to the CUSA title game Harrison will have an extra game to boot his lead as well!
in addition S. Miss pass D is the by far weaker part of their D with both starting LB's now coming off injuries if they even play.
Fingers crossed for Harrison, his numbers are better by far and his impact for his team much bigger as well!
