As the 2016 college football season nears its end, some of the most prestigious awards in the nation are narrowing down the candidates. For the Tallahassee Quarterback Club (TQC) Foundation, Inc., that meant announcing the ten semifinalists for the 2016 Biletnikoff Award on Monday morning.
The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the most outstanding receiver in the nation.
Any player, regardless of position (tight end, slot receiver and back, inside receiver, wide receiver, split end, and running back) who catches a pass is eligible for the award, but this year’s ten finalists are all wide receivers.
With players like Dede Westbrook, John Ross, Corey Davis and Austin Carr up for the award, it is a loaded field.
