Mallory Tabbed to Mackey Award Watch List

CORAL GABLES, Fla. University of Miami tight end Will Mallory is among the John Mackey Award Watch List selections, as announced Friday afternoon.

Awarded annually to college football’s most outstanding tight end, the honor is named after the eponymous Syracuse and Baltimore Colts star, a 1992 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.

A fifth-year senior out of Jacksonville, Fla., Mallory is already among the most distinguished players in the country at his position. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder has 73 receptions for 1,006 yards and 11 touchdowns over his four seasons at The U.

Mallory is coming off the finest year of his career in 2021, as he posted highs in catches (30), yards (347), starts (12) and longest reception (57), while matching his top mark in touchdowns (four).

Since the inauguration of the recognition in 2000, a Miami player has made the John Mackey Award finalist list six times and claimed one trophy. The most recent Hurricane to make the top three was Brevin Jordan in 2019.
