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.
