Moeaki named tight end to watch


Just days after representing the Iowa Hawkeyes at the 2009 Big Ten Football media days in Chicago, Iowa senior tight end Tony Moeaki has made the watch list for the John Mackey Award, which is presented annually to college football’s best tight end every December.

This is the second-straight year Moeaki has begun a football season on the list.

For his career, Moeaki has 46 receptions for 566 yards, and he has scored seven touchdowns.

Last season, the Wheaton, Ill., native only hauled in one touchdown catch, which came in the Hawkeyes’ 55-0 win over Minnesota, on Nov. 22. He also had receptions last season of 48 yards against Pittsburgh and 39 yards in Iowa’s 31-10 win over South Carolina in the 2009 Outback Bowl.

If Moeaki were to receive this honor at season’s end, he would join former Hawkeye Dallas Clark as the only two Iowa tight ends to ever win the John Mackey Award.
