Eric Ebron named John Mackey Tight End of the Week

Junior tight end Eric Ebron has been named John Mackey’s Tight End of the Week. Last week Ebron had eight receptions for 199 yards in an impressive performance.

Of the eight receptions, one was an impressive touchdown run alongside the Miami sideline for 72 yards. Another catch was an impressive one handed catch that had Ebron catching from behind his back in the middle of a dive that landed him on SportsCenter’s top ten plays on Thursday night.

Ebron’s performance against Miami set career highs for himself in receptions and receiving yards. He also set the school record for a tight end with his 199 yards. Six games into the season, Ebron has only scored three touchdowns and needs twelve more to reach the and Coach Larry Fedora’s pre-season goal of 15 touchdowns.

The honorable mentions for the weekly award include: Chris Coyle of Arizona State, Braxton Deaver of Duke, Jake Duzey of Iowa and Nick O’Leary of Florida State.
