BETHPAGE, N.Y.--Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore is one of 26 players named to the Midseason Watch List for the 2012 John Mackey Award. The honor is given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end, as selected by vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee.
Gillmore has 14 receptions for 205 yards (14.6) and two touchdowns through seven games. His 69-yard touchdown reception against North Dakota State on Sept. 8 is the longest by a Mountain West Conference tight end this season, and sixth-longest by any conference player.
A junior from Bushland, Texas, Gillmore earned second-team All-Mountain West honors as a sophomore last season, and was on the preseason watch list for both the Mackey Award and College Football Performance Awards.
The 2012 John Mackey winner will be presented live on December 6, 2012 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show airing at 6:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU. Other key dates include the announcement of the 2012 Mackey semi-finalists on November 12, 2012 and the announcement of the 2012 Mackey finalists on November 19, 2012. All announcements can be found at www.johnmackeyaward.org.
Pro Football Hall of Fame member John Mackey is considered to be the best to have played the tight end position. A tight end by whom all others are measured, Mackey was a role model on and off the field as demonstrated by his Super Bowl Championship, his commitment to community and his place in history as the first President of the NFLPA.
