WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue fifth-year senior tight end Brycen Hopkins has been named one of eight semifinalists for the John Mackey Award. He is the lone semifinalist hailing from a Big Ten school.

Hopkins is tied for third nationally among all tight ends in total receptions (45), second in receptions per game by tight ends (4.5), fourth in total receiving yards by the position (561) and second among TEs in receiving yards per game (56.1). His 10-game totals thus far are the most receptions and receiving yards by a tight end at Purdue since Dustin Keller finished the 2007 season with 68 catches for 881 yards.

Hopkins hauled in 10 passes for 140 yards against Maryland on Oct. 12, both career highs. His reception total was the most by a Purdue tight end since Tim Stratton finished with 12 against Washington State in the 2001 Sun Bowl and his yardage total the most by a Boilermaker at his position since Dustin Keller had 150 vs. Central Michigan in the 2007 Motor City Bowl.

Hopkins' 140 yards receiving vs. the Terrapins are the most in a game by any tight end in the nation, while his 10 receptions are tied for the most by tight ends.

The Mackey Award is presented annually to the nation's top tight end. Stratton won the inaugural award in 2000.
