Wake Forest had two players added to National Award Watch Lists today, as center Ryan Anderson and tight end Cam Serigne were each nominated to their positional award.
Despite not being mentioned at all in a local newspaper article detailing the top 5 offensive players in North Carolina’s Big Four, Wake Forest senior tight end Cam Serigne has been named to the John Mackey Award Watch list. The Mackey Award is given annually to the best tight end in the country, and is named after NFL Hall of Fame Member John Mackey.
Serigne is one of a shocking eleven ACC tight ends named to the list. He decided to come back to Wake Forest after a junior season that saw him catch 30 balls for 426 yards and 3 touchdowns. Serigne has 130 receptions for 1,519 yards and 12 touchdowns in his career.
His best game of last year may have come against No. 23 Temple in the Military Bowl, as Serigne caught 3 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown. Already one of the most prolific tight ends in Wake Forest history, Serigne is seeking to become the career tight end leader in receptions and yards, while he already holds the school record for touchdowns.
Ryan Anderson was also named to the Rimington Award List, awarded to the top center in the country at the end of the year.
Anderson is a redshirt junior out of Raleigh, North Carolina. He has played several positions on the offensive line in his career, spending the last couple of seasons at right tackle. He has started the last 16 games for Wake Forest on the offensive line.
This is pretty interesting because it is unclear if he will be the starting center or fill other needs in the line.
Congratulations to both guys on their nominations and we can’t wait to see what you do on the field for the Deacs next year!
