Pitt WR Jordan Addison Named Biletnikoff Award Semifinalist



The brilliant sophomore season of Pitt wide receiver Jordan Addison has been recognized on a national level.

Today, Addison was named as a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which is given to college football’s most outstanding FBS receiver at any position.

Thanks in large part to the duo of Addison and senior quarterback Kenny Pickett, the Pitt Panthers are in first place and a win away from clinching the ACC Coastal Division Title.

In 10 games, Addison has 60 catches for 1,070 yards (17.8 yards/catch) and 11 touchdowns. Those 11 touchdowns are the most by a Pitt wide receiver since Larry Fitzgerald caught 22 in 2003.

Addison is averaging 107 yards per game, which ranks 9th in the country. His 12 total touchdowns are 25th most in the country, regardless of position.

The other semifinalists are David Bell (Purdue), Jahan Dotson (Penn State), Josh Downs (North Carolina), Drake London (USC), Chris Olave (Ohio State), A.T. Perry (Wake Forest), Jerreth Sterns (Western Kentucky), Deven Thompkins (Utah State) and Jameson Williams (Alabama).

The three finalists will be announced on November 23 and the winner on December 9, during the College Football Awards Show.

Great season from Addison, but you can tell he still has room to grow by watching the past few weeks.
The Drop in the end zone last week was almost costly, but the bad route against Miami was one of the reasons Pitt lost that game.
Great kid and great player, Hopefully Pitt can find some good QB play next year so Addison can shine once again.
