Michael Egnew has followed in the steps of Martin Rucker and Chase Coffman to be named a Mackey Award finalist in 2010
For the third time in four years, Mizzou has a tight end named a finalist for the Mackey Award, which is given to the nation’s top tight end.
Michael Egnew was named a Mackey Award finalist Monday, joining Martin Rucker (2007 finalist) and Chase Coffman (2008 winner) as recent Mizzou tight ends to be named finalists for the award.
Egnew’s stats are light years ahead Wisconsin’s Lance Kendricks and Arkansas’ D.J. Williams, the other two Mackey Award finalists. To put things in perspective, Egnew has 78 catches so far this season. Kendricks (35) and Williams (46) have a combined 81 catches. Egnew’s 663 receiving yards are over 100 more than the next closest finalist (Williams, 561).
