Emory Blake Latest Tiger to be Named to Preseason Award Watch List

Emory Blake catches a pass and stays in bounds during the SEC Championship Game on December 4th, 2010 in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

The names of Auburn Football players on 2011 preseason watch list were scarce in 2011. That's not been the case in 2012. Nine collegiate awards have Auburn nominees listed for 2012 preseason honors; ten if you count the preseason All-SEC Team.

And today Wide Receiver Emory Blake was announced as a preseason favorite for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, which honors the nation's outstanding college football receiver.

Even though the Auburn senior missed about a third of the season last year with injuries, he still finished the year as the Tigers' top receiver with 614 yards and five touchdowns.

The award is named for Fred Biletnikoff, an All-American at Florida State University and an All-Pro Receiver for the Oakland Raiders. He was the MVP of Super Bowl XI.

The sponsor Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. will announce 10 semifinalists on Nov. 12 and three finalists on Nov.19 with the winner being revealed along with other major collegiate award winners on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show.

Here's to hoping that Blake has the kind of year to earn a semifinalist spot at the Awards show in Orlando December 6th.

War Eagle Emory!
