Congratulations to CJ Conrad, who is one of thirty players named to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end.

So far this season, Conrad has 12 catches for 169 yards and three touchdowns. He was named John Mackey Tight End of the Week after catching five passes for 133 yards and three touchdowns — all career highs — in Kentucky’s 62-42 win over New Mexico State. With that performance, he became the first UK tight end with three touchdowns in a game since first-team All-American James Whalen in 1999 and the only UK player to have at least 133 receiving yards and three touchdowns in Commonwealth Stadium history.

The semifinalists for the Mackey Award will be named on November 14, the finalists on November 22, and the winner on December 7.

Here are some Conrad highlights for your lunchtime viewing:

    7 catches for 36 yards in 5 games. Ugh, either this kid was sorely overrated in High School, or he’s a stud and these coaches absolutely blow.

    Do they give these national awards to kids on losing teams?
