The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation announced today that Auburn Wide Receiver Sammie Coates has been named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List.

Coates was the Tigers’ No. 1 receiver last year, catching 42 passes for 902 yards and seven touchdowns; a number good enough to finish third in the country at nearly 22 yards per catch. And he is also on the watch list (along with Nick Marshall) for the Maxwell Award, an honor which goes to the nation’s top player. 

With an emphasis this year on the passing game, Sammie may just wind up a finalist for the Biletnikoff. The winner of this year’s award will be announced at the Home Depot College Football Awards show on Dec. 11, 2014. Good luck to the Tigers’ top receiver!
