UNC's Eric Ebron named Mackey Award Tight End of the Week

Posted October 23, 2013

The John Mackey Award named Eric Ebron of North Carolina as John Mackey Tight End of the Week Wednesday. The Atlantic Coast Conference junior recorded eight receptions for 199 yards and a touchdown as North Carolina fell to Miami 27-23 in a game that saw Miami pull ahead with only 16 seconds remaining.

Ebron set a career high in receptions and his receiving yards total set a new all-time single game record by a UNC tight end. Honorable mentions for this week's John Mackey Tight End of the Week include Chris Coyle of Arizona State, Braxton Deaver of Duke, Jake Duzey of Iowa and Nick O'Leary of Florida State.

The John Mackey Tight End of the Week is an honor distinct and different from the annual John Mackey Award. This weekly honor was started in 2004 to draw attention to individual play by Tight Ends during the active season. The Tight End of the Week acknowledgment does not have a direct bearing on the final John Mackey Award selection process. 

The John Mackey Award is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 21 awards boast 678 years of tradition-selection excellence. 

The Friends of John Mackey is responsible for the administration of the John Mackey Award and the John Mackey Award Selection Committee.
