July 8, 2014

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Colorado State senior tight end Kivon Cartwright received national recognition Tuesday, when the John Mackey Award Selection Committee named him one of 38 preseason watch list candidates for the 2014 John Mackey Award, presented annually to the nation’s top tight end.

Cartwright, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound senior from Pueblo, Colo., is one of only three tight ends on the watch list from the Mountain West. He earned a spot on the 2013 midseason John Mackey Award watch list.

Cartwright enters his final season with 56 receptions for 835 yards and nine touchdowns.

The award recipient is selected by vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee and the 2014 winner will be announced on Dec. 10 and then presented live the next day at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU.
