Doctson Named Biletnikoff Award Finalist

Nov. 24, 2015

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - TCU’s Josh Doctson has been named one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award, recognizing college football's most outstanding receiver regardless of position.

The Biletnikoff Award is presented by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation Inc. The other two finalists are Baylor’s Corey Coleman and Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell.

As a finalist, Doctson will be in attendance at the Dec. 10 Home Depot College Football Awards Show, televised live by ESPN, in Atlanta.

Doctson leads the nation with 132.7 receiving yards per game. He is the only player in the country to rank in the top 6 in receiving yards per game, receptions per game (7.9) and touchdown catches (14). His 79 receptions, 1,327 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns are TCU single-season records. The receiving yards rank second nationally, while the touchdowns are tied for second. He is sixth in the FBS at 7.9 receptions per game.

Doctson has joined two-time Biletnikoff Award winner Michael Crabree from Texas Tech as the only players in the last 20 years to have six straight games with at least 100 yards receiving and multiple touchdown catches.

Eleven of Doctson's 14 touchdown receptions have come with the score in single digits. He tops the nation with 56 catches of at least 10 yards. His 62 receptions in conference play are the most in the nation.

A senior from Mansfield, Texas, Doctson received Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors after his 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns in TCU's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Doctson is one of just eight players in Big 12 history to have multiple seasons of at least 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdown catches. He accomplished the rarity of scoring a touchdown for and against TCU. Playing his true freshman season at Wyoming, he caught a touchdown pass against the Horned Frogs in 2011.

Doctson's 26 career touchdown passes with Trevone Boykin rank second nationally among active duos.

Doctson, who will earn his TCU degree next month, is ranked by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. as the No. 2 wide receiver in the 2016 NFL Draft.
