Anthony Fasano Named To Mackey Award Watch List

Irish senior tight end caught 27 passes during the 2004 season.





Aug. 3, 2005


Anthony Fasano, a senior tight end on the University of Notre Dame football team, has been named to the 2005 John Mackey Award Watch List which is given annually to the nation's best collegiate tight end.


Fasano is coming off his most productive season in 2004. As a junior, he finished second on the team with 27 catches for 367 yards and four touchdowns. Proficient in pass catching, route running and blocking, Fasano is poised for a break out year in Notre Dame's new offense - under the direction of head coach Charlie Weis and offensive coordinator Mike Haywood.


Fasano caught four passes for 60 yards in the '04 season opener against BYU and continued to be a reliable force in the Irish offense throughout the campaign. He exploded for career highs in catches and yards against Purdue, nabbing eight receptions for a Notre Dame tight end record 155 receiving yards.


He was named the John Mackey National Tight End of the Week for his performance against Purdue.


The Verona, N.J., native, one of 20 players on the watch list, also caught two touchdown passes against Washington and added scoring receptions at Tennessee and against Oregon State in the Insight Bowl.


Fasano also was a key contributor in 2003. As a sophomore, he caught 18 passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns. He did not play during his freshman season in 2002.


NFL Hall of Famer John Mackey is considered to be the best to have played the tight end position. The award honors his leadership and career of excellence.


The John Mackey Award has been presented since 2000, with four NFL players as alumni: Dallas Clark ('01), Daniel Graham ('02), Kellen Winslow, Jr. ('03) and Heath Miller ('04).


Nassau County Sports Commmission, a non-profit organization to enhance quality of life by "Improving Life through Sports" and promote "Healthy Sports for Healthy Kids," presents this national football award as a tribute to Nassau County sports legend and native John Mackey.

Sir John...Walk on is just a rank. It labels all posters with 0-19 posts as such. You don't have a rank because you are a part of the staff (which is identified in place of the rank).

Murph/DD Staff would like to say good luck to Fasano this season. I think he will be a pretty big player next season. I'm not sure if he can win the Mackey award, but I see him getting 5-7 touchdowns easily.
