Green Named Mackey Award Finalist

Photo Courtey—


After a six catch, 111 yard performance at Florida Atlantic on Saturday, Louisiana junior tight end Ladarius Green has been named a semifinalist for the 2010 John Mackey Award.

The John Mackey Award is given annually to the nation’s top collegiate tight end.  Some previous winners include Dallas Clark, Kellen Winslow, Heath Miller, Marcedes Lewis and Aaron Hernandez.

Green was a part of the Preseason and Midseason Watch Lists for the award and is one of eight semifinalists.  The eight will be trimmed to three finalists on Monday, November 22.

Green ranks first among the eight semifinalists in touchdowns (5), yards per game (71.4), yards per reception (17.8), longest reception (63) and games with 80 or more receiving yards (5).  He is also second in receiving yards with 571, just 15 yards shy of first.

Green is the Cajuns career leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns amongst tight ends.  He is also just two receiving yards short of the career Top 10 for all Cajuns pass catchers.  His 12 career receiving touchdowns are already in UL’s all-time Top 5.

Green will be back on the field this Saturday as the Cajuns host FIU at Cajun Field at 6:00 p.m.  The contest will mark the final home game of 2010 for Green and UL.
