July 16, 2013

RENO, Nev. – Nevada senior wide receiver Brandon Wimberly has been named to the Watch List for the Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the nation, the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation announced Tuesday.

A first-team All-Mountain West selection in 2012, Wimberly led Nevada with 70 catches for 845 yards to go along with four touchdowns. He was third in the MW in receptions per games and fifth in the conference in yards per game. For his career, Wimberly has 164 receptions for 2,060 yards and 10 scores.

Wimberly has caught a pass in 40 consecutive games – all 40 games of his career – which is the longest active streak in the nation. He has also started 37 games in his career, which is tied for the 11th-longest streak in the nation entering the season.

Wimberly is one of just five Mountain West players on the list.

The Biletnikoff Award recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football. The award recipient is selected by the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee, a group of over 200 prominent college football journalists, commentators, and former receivers. The 2013 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented live on Dec. 12 on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN.
