FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas senior tight end Chris Gragg was named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week by the Nassau County Sports Commission, it was announced Wednesday.

Gragg, included on the Mackey Award Watch List this preseason, made seven receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Razorbacks' 49-24 season-opening win vs. Jacksonville State last Saturday. The senior from Warren, Ark., was the only player in the SEC and one of just 16 in the NCAA with two receiving touchdowns in the season's opening week. He recorded the second 100-yard receiving game of his career, and his 110 receiving yards were the most by a tight end in the nation last week. His seven receptions were the most by a tight end in the SEC and tied for the sixth-most overall in the conference.

The Mackey Award is given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end by the Nassau County Sports Commission. The award recipient is selected by vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee. The 2012 John Mackey Award winner will be presented live on Dec. 6, 2012 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU. The semifinalists will be announced on Nov. 12, and the announcement of the finalists will be the next week on Nov. 19.

Former Razorback D.J. Williams won the Mackey Award in 2010 to become the first Arkansas student-athlete to claim the award.
