Alabama receiver Jerry Jeudy wins 2018 Fred Biletnikoff Award

Alabama football has its second award-winning wide receiver and it is fitting that he also hails from the state of Florida. 

Jerry Jeudy has had an exceptional sophomore year, totaling 59 catches for 1,103 yards receiving with 12 touchdowns in 13 games. He joins former Crimson Tide standout, Amari Cooper (2014) as the second player in school history to win the honor for the nation’s best wide receiver.

The former five-star displayed his finest performances against the Southeastern Conference, turning in 100-yard outings versus Ole Miss (136), Arkansas (136), Missouri (147) and LSU (103) while posting at least two touchdown receptions in four regular season games. 

His 10-yard scoring grab from Jalen Hurts tied Alabama at 28 with Georgia in the fourth quarter of the SEC Championship Game last week in Atlanta. While his output in receiving yards is second in the conference, Jeudy’s numbers are third all-time in UA history for yards and second all-time for touchdowns.

After winning a national award on Thursday night, he will look to help the Tide capture a win over Oklahoma on Dec. 29 in the College Football Playoff semifinal.
