TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State University junior tight end Todd Heap has been announced as one of the three finalists for the Inaugural John Mackey Award for the nation's best collegiate tight end in Division I-A.
Heap, who became ASU all-time leading tight end in reception yardage and total catches, has been stellar this year despite drawing double-coverage for almost off of the opponents. The junior from Mesa, Ariz., has 42 caught passes this year for 570 yards, resulting in three touchdowns and 23 first downs.
The other two finalists for the prestigious award are Alge Crumpler of North Carolina and Tim Stratton of Purdue. The award will be announced on the evening of Dec. 4 in New York City. The selection committee for the award include NFL greats Mark Bavaro, Keith Jackson, and Kellen Winslow, as well as media members Lee Corso of ESPN, Sean McDonough, Spencer Tilllman and Marc Connolly.
