Fred Biletnikoff Award

  (Redirected from Biletnikoff Award)

The Fred Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the outstanding receiver in American college football by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. (TQCF), an independent not-for-profit organization. The award was created by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. in 1994.[1] The award is named for Fred Biletnikoff, who played college football at Florida State University and professionally with the Oakland Raiders.[2] Any NCAA Division I FBS player who catches the football through the forward pass is eligible to be selected as the award winner, although every winner since 1994 has been a wide receiver. A national selection committee consisting of over 540 journalists, commentators, broadcasters, and former players selects the award winner. No member of the board of trustees of the foundation has a vote.
