Giles Named to Biletnikoff Award Watch List
BATON ROUGE – LSU junior wide receiver Jonathan Giles has been named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List, the Tallahassee Touchdown Club announced on Thursday.
The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the top wide receiver in college football. Former LSU standout Josh Reed won the award in 2001.
Giles, a transfer from Texas Tech that will be eligible to compete this year after sitting out the 2017 season, was one of the top receivers in the country in 2016 as he led the Red Raiders in yards (1,158) and touchdowns (13). He caught 69 passes as a sophomore.
It’s the second time that Giles has been named to the Biletnikoff Award list as he earned a spot on the list in 2016.
The winner of the Biletnikoff Award will be named live on December 6, 2018 at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN.
