NC State tight end George Bryan has been named to the 2011 Mackey Award Watch List as announced today by the Nassau County Sports Commission. The award is given annually to the nation's top tight end.
Bryan, a two-time All-ACC performer, was a semifinalist for the award last season. He is only the third tight end in school history to earn first-team all-conference honors, and is the only one to do so twice.
Last year Bryan caught 35 passes for 369 yards and three scores. He will enter the season with 13 career touchdown catches, tied for ninth in school history and the most among returning players.
