On Wednesday morning, Miami Hurricanes TE Christopher Herndon IV was named the Mackey Award TE of the week.
After setting career highs in catches (10) and yards (96) to go along with a TD versus Syracuse, the senior from Norcross, GA has added yet another award. Herndon was previously named the ACC receiver of the week, which we detailed — along with other Canes who were given awards — here.
As for Herndon’s new recognition, here’s the info from the John Mackey Award website:
New York, N.Y. (October 25, 2017) – The John Mackey Award has named Christopher Herndon IV of Miami as the John Mackey Tight End of the Week. The Atlantic Coast Conference senior had a huge game setting career highs with ten receptions and 96 receiving yards. He also Tied a season game career high with a touchdown catch as Miami defeated Syracuse 27-19.
I’ve been saying for a while that Herndon is the best TE in the ACC, and this award only strengthens my belief in that fact. Herndon is a dynamic athlete, and his impact on the game was huge for Miami in a big win (that shouldn’t have been as close as it was, but I digress).
