Finalists and Winner: 2013 All-Bilo Tight End of the Year

The TE position has been devalued across football, but there are a few in the game that really do stand out. In the case of our FBS award for TE of the Year, I have named all four of our semi-finalists as finalists as well. Here they are:

Devin Funchess-Michigan
Gator Haskins-Marshall
Jace Amaro-Texas Tech
Eric Ebron-North Carolina

The winner of this year's award had a season unseen by most TE's in the history of the game. He is no simple WR playing TE, as he looks like he belongs in the position physically. The winner of the 2013 FBS All-Bilo Tight End of the Year Award is:

Jace Amaro-Texas Tech
Amaro had a season that can be called nothing other than ridiculous at the TE position in 2013, having caught 106 passes for 1352 yards. His 106 receptions ranked 7th in FBS, while his yardage ranked 11th. He averaged a stunning 12.52 yards per catch, while averaging 8.2 receptions per game. He scored 7 TDs on the season in helping lead the Red Raiders to a birth in the Holiday Bowl, where the Red Raiders defeated Arizona State. Congratulations to Jace Amaro and to the Texas Tech Program!
