Watching the watch lists: Matt Furstenburg up for Mackey Award


Furstenburg started all 12 games in 2011, finishing third in the ACC among tight ends in receptions per game (2.6) and receiving yards per game (29). He was named to the midseason watch list for the Mackey Award last season.

The award will be presented Dec. 6.

On Monday, defensive lineman Joe Vellano was named to the watch list for the Bednarik Award, given to the nation’s top defensive player.

After spending the first 17 years of his Post career writing and editing, Matt and the printed paper had an amicable divorce in 2014. He's now blogging and editing for the Early Lead and the Post's other Web-based products.
