Liberty wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden has been named to the preseason Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation announced Thursday.
The Biletnikoff Award, named in honor of Fred Biletnikoff, has been given to the most outstanding FBS receiver in college football. Biletnikoff is a member of the pro and college football hall of fame after an All-American career at Florida State and an All-Pro career for the Oakland Raiders.
Gandy-Golden (Sr., Dallas, Ga.) had 1,037 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018, which would have ranked No. 30 in the nation had Liberty student-athletes been eligible for FBS statistical rankings.

The winner of the 2019 Biletnikoff Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on December 12, 2019.
