Ohio State Football: Jeff Heuerman named to 2014 Mackey Award Watch List

The preseason watch lists for some of the most coveted awards in college football continued to be rolled out on Tuesday, and Ohio State Buckeyes continued to be recognized. This time it was tight end Jeff Heuerman, who was named to the 2014 John Mackey Award Watch List, recognizing the top tight end in the country.

Heuerman had undoubtedly his best season on the field in 2013 as a junior when he amassed 466 yards on 26 catches with four touchdowns.

This season, especially with head coach Urban Meyer wanting to get Braxton Miller acclimated to throwing the ball from the pocket more, Heuerman should be an integral part of the offensive system.
