Congrats to the Mickster .... sorry I just called you the Mickster. Here's the press release.

The John Mackey Award has named Micky Crum of Louisville as the John Mackey Tight End of the Week. The freshman had a breakout game with six catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. His 29-yard touchdown reception gave Louisville the lead with 6:41 remaining in the fourth quarter before the team would go on to lose to Houston 34-31. Micky is also the first freshman to be named Tight End of the Week in 2015. Honorable mentions for this week's John Mackey Tight End of the Week include DeAndre Goolsby of Florida and Bryce Williams of East Carolina.  

The 2015 John Mackey recipient will be  announced on December 9, 2015 and then presented live on December 10, 2015 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU. Other key dates include the announcement of the 2015 Mackey Midseason Watch List on October 12, 2015, the 2015 Mackey Semi-finalists on November 16, 2015 and the 2015 Mackey Finalists on November 24, 2015.

All future announcements can be found at , on our official Twitter account: @JohnMackeyAward and also on our official Facebook page: .    The John Mackey Tight End of the Week is an honor distinct and different from the annual John Mackey Award. This weekly honor was started in 2004 to draw attention to individual play by Tight Ends during the active season. The Tight End of the Week acknowledgment does not have a direct bearing on the final John Mackey Award selection process. The John Mackey Tight End of the Week honor will run until the announcement of the eight Semi-Finalists.  

The John Mackey Award is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA) which encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 22 awards boast over 700 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit to learn more about our story.
