TE Michael Egnew
July 7, 2011
Columbia, Mo.. – A pair of offensive standouts for the University of Missouri football program have been recognized as pre-season candidates for prestigious awards. Senior TE Michael Egnew (Plainview, Texas) and junior WR T.J. Moe (O’Fallon, Mo.) have been named to the pre-season watch lists for the Mackey Award and the Biletnikoff Award, respectively.
The John Mackey Award goes annually to the nation’s top tight end, while the Biletnikoff Award goes to the nation’s top wide receiver. Mizzou’s Chase Coffman won the Mackey Award as a senior in 2008.
Egnew returns for his senior season in 2011 after exploding onto the scene a year ago, when he led all of the nation’s tight ends with 90 receptions, totaling 762 yards and five touchdowns. He earned consensus 1st-Team All-American and Mackey Award finalist status for his play, after he had a total of seven receptions combined in his first two years as a Tiger.
Similarly, Moe made a name for himself in 2010, when he led the Tigers, and ranked 9th nationally with 92 receptions for 1,045 yards and six touchdowns. All of that production as a sophomore came a year after he caught just two passes for eight yards as a true freshman in 2009. Moe closed the 2010 season in record-setting fashion, as he shattered Mizzou bowl game records with 15 receptions for 152 yards in the Insight Bowl against Iowa.
This dynamic duo joins junior LB Zaviar Gooden on the pre-season watch lists, as Gooden was unveiled earlier this week on the watch list for the Bednarik Award which goes annually to the nation’s top overall defensive player.
