Rider's Ward Named to Biletnikoff Watch List

Posted: Updated:

Former Rider Raider wide receiver Eric Ward was named to the Fred Biletnikoff Award watch list Tuesday.

The Texas Tech senior caught 82 passes for 1,053 yards and twelve touchdowns in his junior year, almost equaling his career numbers coming into the season.

He's one of ten Biletnikoff watch list members in the Big 12. The others are TCU's Brandon Carter, Texas's Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley, Oklahoma's Troy Metoyer and Jalen Saunders, Oklahoma State's Tracy Moore and Josh Stewart, Baylor's Tevin Reese and West Virginia's Jordan Thompson.

The last Red Raider to win the award was Michael Crabtree in 2008.
