TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (SMU) - SMU junior Aldrick Robinson is one of 37 players on the "Watch List" for the 2009 Biletnikoff Award, which recognizes the top wide receiver in college football, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation announced today.
Robinson earned honorable mention All-C-USA accolades last season after hauling in 59 passes for 1,047 yards in 10 games. He had 11 touchdown catches on the season, which ties for the most ever in a season at SMU. Robinson ranked sixth in the nation with 104.7 receiving yards per game and was just the third player in SMU history to record a 1,000-yard season. He had a streak of five straight games with a receiving TD and had four 100-yard games in 2008, including a 210-yard effort at UCF - the second-highest total ever in a game at SMU - and a 186-yard game against Houston - the third-highest total ever in a game at SMU. Robinson also set another mark against UCF, pulling down a 94-yard TD reception, which ranks as the second-longest pass play in SMU history.
The winner of the 17th Biletnikoff Award will be announced as part of ESPN's College Football Awards Show on December 10th. The award will be officially presented to the winner at the annual Biletnikoff Award dinner, hosted by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club, on February 12, 2009.
