Jake McGee Named To Mackey Watch List

Posted: Updated: Date / Time

University of Virginia junior tight end Jake McGee has been named to the preseason watch list for the John Mackey Award.  

The Mackey Award is given out annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end in the nation.

McGee made the All-ACC team last year.  He finished with 28-receptions for 374-yards and five touchdowns.  The five TD's are the fifth-most all-time by a UVA tight end in a single season.   

McGee is looking to become the second Cavalier to win the award, as former Wahoo Heath Miller won the Mackey Award in 2004.  

The award will be presented on December 12.
