TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State wide receiver Tamorrion Terry is one of six sophomores named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, which was released Thursday.
Terry, who represented FSU at Wednesday’s ACC Kickoff event, burst onto the scene as a redshirt freshman last season, leading the team with an FSU freshman-record 744 receiving yards and eight touchdowns on 35 receptions to become only the fourth freshman in program history to lead FSU in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. The Ashburn, Georgia, native was the first Seminole with two 70-yard touchdown catches in a season since Peter Warrick in 1998, and that total ranks first in the NCAA among 2019 returners. He also ranks third in the nation among returners with a 21.3 yards-per-reception average and 39.1 yards-per-touchdown reception average and sixth in catches-per-touchdown ratio with a score every 4.375 catches last season.
The Biletnikoff Award, named after Florida State’s first consensus All-American Fred Biletnikoff, is presented annually to college football’s outstanding receiver. The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation will announce 10 semifinalists Nov. 18 before revealing three finalists one week later. The 2019 Biletnikoff Award winner will be announced Dec. 12 during the Home Depot College Football Awards live on ESPN.
Florida State opens its 2019 season against Boise State in Jacksonville on Aug. 31. Tickets for the 7 p.m. kickoff can be purchased here. Ticket options for the six games inside Doak Campbell Stadium, including a Nov. 2 matchup with rival Miami, are available here.
