Aug. 10, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana junior wide receiver Tandon Doss has been named to the 2010 Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation announced today. The award is presented annually to the top receiver in college football.
From the initial list, the Biletnikoff Selection Committee will trim the list to 10 semifinalists on Nov. 15 and from there, three finalists will be announced on Nov. 22. The Biletnikoff Award winner will be announced on The Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 9.
Doss, a first team All-Big Ten selection by the conference media in 2009, led the Hoosiers in receptions in nine games and receiving yards eight times. He paced the team with 962 yards, 77 receptions, five touchdowns and 80.2 yards per game. Doss finished second in the Big Ten and 27th nationally in yards per game and third in the league and tied for 21st nationally in catches per game (6.64).
The Indianapolis native's 962 yards were 14th in the country and the second most for an underclassman. Doss closed out the year second on IU's single-season receptions list, just two shy of Hardy's record of 79 in 2007, and fifth in the school's single-season yardage rankings.
Along with his three 100-yard receiving games, Doss owned 533 kick return yards, 127 rushing yards, 44 punt return yards and led the conference with 138.8 all-purpose yards per contest. He finished ninth on IU's single-season list with 1,666 all-purpose yards, surpassed 100 all-purpose yards in seven of the last nine games and eight times in 2009, including a season-best 242 against Purdue.
