A Texas Tech football player has been named as a semifinalist for two different awards.

Junior tight end Jace Amaro has been named as a semifinalist for the John Mackey Award and the Biletnikoff Award.

The John Mackey Award is given to the nation’s top tight end, and the Biletnikoff Award is given to the nation’s top receiver.

Amaro is the first student-athlete named to both semifinalist lists since Missouri’s Chase Coffman in 2008.

He is also the first Red Raider in school history to be named as a semifinalist for the Mackey Award and the first to be a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award since Michael Crabtree in 2008.

Amaro, a San Antonio native, has racked up 1,157 receiving yards on 92 catches, and has hauled in six touchdown catches. His 92 receptions rank second nationally.

Finalists for both awards will be announced on Monday, November 25th, and the winners will be announced at the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show on December 12th.
