Lance Kendricks Badger Tight End Gains Recognition

Lance Kendricks first put on his Badger uniform as a wide receiver when he walked on campus, since that time he has transformed himself into one of the very best tight ends in the country and was recognized as such when he was named a Mackey Award semifinalist yesterday. The Mackey award is given to the best tight end in the country. Lance currently leads the Badgers with 31 catches for 473 yards and 4 touchdowns which puts him 6th nationally and tied for 11 amongst tight ends. What us has impressed us most this season about Kendricks is his tenacity on blocking, he can truly call himself a tight end after some of the hits he has dished out. In what is becoming a great tradition of Badger tight ends, no Badger has yet won the Mackey but Travis Beckum was named as a semifinalist and finalist in 2006 and 2007.  The accolades just keep coming for Badger players which is going to happen when you have talent on a winning team, Kendricks, Clay, and White have gained recognition this week. Of course the great thing about all of the individuals being recognized is that they clearly think of the team first and that isn't always the case with "star" players.
