On Wednesday morning, Arkansas junior tight end Hunter Henry was named the winner of the John Mackey Award, given to the nation’s top tight end each season.

Henry was very deserving of the award. The reliable Razorback hauled in 46 receptions for 647 yards and three touchdowns this season, and his game-saving lateral on an incredible fourth-and-25 conversion against Ole Miss will live on forever.

Check out Arkansas’ video tribute to Henry:

Henry has 111 catches in his career. The Razorbacks will take on Kansas State in the Autozone Liberty Bowl on Jan 2.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
