Former Del Oro tight end on John Mackey Award watch list

For the second year in a row, San Jose State University tight end Ryan Otten, a former Del Oro standout, is listed on the John Mackey Award Midseason Watch List.

Sponsored by the Nassau County Sports Commission, the John Mackey Award is given annually to the outstanding collegiate tight end.

Otten is one of 26 tight ends on the list.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound senior and Bee All-Metro first team selection in 2007 leads all tight ends that are averaging at least four receptions per game in yards per catch with a 15.1 average.

At the Spartans' midpoint of the season, Otten is third on the team with 24 receptions for 382 yards and one touchdown.

Heading into the Saturday's game at the University of Texas, San Antonio, Otten now is the Spartans' career leader for tight ends with 103 receptions for 1,380 yards.
