Pitt tight end Lucas Krull has been named to the watch list for the Mackey Award, given annually to the top tight end in the nation.
The award has been handed out by the Nassau County Sports Commission to the tight end who exemplifies the play, sportsmanship, academics and community values of John Mackey, an NFL Hall of Fame tight end from Syracuse that spent eight years with the Baltimore Colts.
Krull, a 6-foot-6, 257-pound graduate transfer from Florida, caught nine passes for 108 yards over two seasons with the Gators.
No Pitt tight end has ever won the award. Florida Atlantic tight end Harrison Bryant won the award in 2019.
