We move on with our positional players of the year with our FBS Tight End of the Year for 2011. There were a solid group of TEs in the country this season, so here is a list of our finalists for this award.

Dwayne Allen, Clemson
Michael Egnew, Missouri
Nick Provo, Syracuse
Tyler Eifort, Notre Dame
Gavin Escobar, San Diego State
Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Washington
Coby Fleener, Stanford
Orson Charles, Georgia
Jack Doyle, Western Kentucky

The winner of this award is named based on an average score taken from six receiving categories. The player with the highest score amongst those categories is then named our All-Bilo TE of the Year. And the winner of the All-Bilo FBS TE of the Year for 2011 is...

Tyler Eifort, Notre Dame
Eifort was a major factor in the Irish passing game in 2011. With young, developing QBs on the roster, Eifort was a stabalizing force on offense, having caught 63 passes for 803 yards and 5 TDs. Eifort averaged 12.75 yards per catch on the season, and averaged 4.8 catches per game. Eifort was good for 61.8 yards per game on the season, as Notre Dame finished the year with an 18-14 loss to Florida State in the Champs Sports Bowl.
