MADISON, Wis. -- For the second consecutive week, Wisconsin senior Lance Kendricks has been honored as the John Mackey Tight End of the Week, the Nassau County Sports Commission announced Wednesday.
One week after setting a career high with 131 receiving yards and tying his career best with seven receptions and a touchdown against Arizona State, the Milwaukee, Wis., native followed it up with a six-catch, 103-yard performance with one touchdown against Austin Peay on Sept. 25.
He is the first Badger to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving games since former tight end Travis Beckum did so against Michigan and Ohio State in 2007.
Kendricks, who was named to the preseason Mackey Award Watch List, has started all four games in 2010 and leads the team with 17 receptions for 299 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
Among all tight ends in the Football Bowl Subdivsion, Kendricks ranks first in receiving yards, tied for second in receiving touchdowns and tied for fifth in receptions.
