TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, the creator and sponsor of the Biletnikoff Award, presented annually to college football's outstanding receiver, today announced the addition of eight players to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List. Middle Tennessee's Anthony Amos is one of the eight new candidates.
Amos, a senior, leads the Blue Raiders with 21 receptions for 300 yards and three touchdowns. The Fayetteville, NC, native has established a personal-best in each of his last three games and is coming off a nine-catch, 128-yard effort in the win over Memphis.
Amos, a former walk-on, leads the Sun Belt in total receptions and receiving yardage.
The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the nation's outstanding college football receiver (the award defines receiver as any player who catches a pass) by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. (TQC).
Foundation selection chairman Ritchie Pickron stated, "Eight players have distinguished themselves as receivers several games into the young college football season and merit inclusion on the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award." Those players are:
Alex Amidon - Boston College
Anthony Amos - Middle Tennessee State University
Austin Franklin - New Mexico State University
Austin Hill - University of Arizona
Donte Moncrief - University of Mississippi
Allen Robinson - Penn State University
Marcus Sales - Syracuse University
Jaime Wilson - Western Michigan University
The Foundation expects to increase the number of players on the watch list during the course of the season. "Given the significant number of excellent receivers this year, the Foundation will be active in the coming weeks in identifying additional receivers to be placed on the Biletnikoff Award watch list," noted Foundation Chairman Walter W. Manley, II."
