UCLA Football: Greg Dulcich Named to 2021 John Mackey Award Watch List
The John Mackey Award honors the most outstanding collegiate tight end.
Greg Dulcich has been named to the 2021 John Mackey Award Watch List.
The John Mackey Award is given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end. The award recipient is selected by a vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee.
Dulcich had a breakout season last year despite the fact that UCLA only played seven games. He made 26 receptions last season for 517 yards with five touchdowns. His best game of the year came against Southern Cal when he caught eight passes for 167 yards and one touchdown. Then, in the season finale against Stanford, he caught two of his five touchdowns of the season. But what made his performance against the Cardinal stand out is the fact that those two touchdowns were his only catches of the game. He was also named to the All-Pac-12 second team last season.
The 2021 Mackey Award recipient will be announced on December 9, 2021 at The Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN.
NFL Hall of Fame member John Mackey is considered one of the all-time greats to ever have played the tight end position. Mackey was a role model on and off the field as demonstrated by his Super Bowl Championship, his commitment to community and his place in history as the first President of the NFLPA.
Last year’s winner was Kylie Pitts of Florida.
Dulcich is looking to become the second Bruin to win the Mackey Award, which has been presented since 2000. Former Bruin Marcedes Lewis was the 2005 Mackey Award winner.
