Cavalier senior tight end Tom Santi is one of 31 players on the John Mackey Award Watch List. The Mackey Award is presented to the best tight end in the nation.
Santi has continued the tradition of solid tight ends at Virgnia. Last season, he caught 29 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown. For his career, he has 766 receiving yards, good enough for eighth all time as a Cavalier for receiving yards by a tight end. Santi joins Jonathan Stupar and John Phillips as one of the best tight end trios in the ACC.
Back in 2004, Virginia tight end Heath Miller won the Mackey Award. He was the Pittsburgh Steelers' first round draft pick the following spring.
