FORT COLLINS — Colorado State tight end Trey McBride has won the Mackey Award given annually to the best tight end in college football.

McBride joined family and teammates Thursday night for a watch party inside Canvas Stadium to celebrate his selection on a live ESPN broadcast. It highlighted a historic season for the Fort Morgan native who led all tight ends nationally in catches (90) and receiving yards (1,121) as a senior.

McBride beat out Iowa State’s Charlie Kolar and Texas A&M’s Jalen Wydermyer for the honor.

McBride is the first Rams tight end to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark in a single season. He finished his four-year CSU career with 164 catches for 2,100 yards and 10 touchdowns.

McBride is considered the top-ranked tight end prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft, per ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.
