Texas Tech's Amaro 'congratulates' national tight end of the week
OCT 25, 2013 11:07a ET
But he isn't getting any love from the John Mackey Award, which is annually given to the nation's top tight end.
Amaro wasn't included on the watch list released earlier this month.
Fans have flooded the Mackey Award's Facebook page, expressing their displeasure with him being left out.
Amaro had another big game last week in the Red Raiders' road win over West Virginia, but that apparently wasn't good enough.
He took to Twitter earlier this week to "congratulate" North Carolina's Eric Ebron for being named national tight end of the week.
Congrats on my boy @Ebron85 on being the national tight end of the week! Must be nice to be a SUPERSTAR!— Jace Amaro (@J_ACER22) October 23, 2013
Ebron had eight catches for 199 yards and a touchdown. Not a bad performance in the Tar Heel's 27-23 loss to Miami.
By comparison, Amaro had nine catches for 136 yards and two touchdowns.
Amaro has 56 receptions for 742 yards and three touchdowns this season.
He'll have a big opportunity to make another statement in a nationally televised game on the road against No. 15 Oklahoma on Saturday.
