It’s not too often that a player returns to school after winning one of the most prestigious individual awards. LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase has a chance to do something special during his junior season.
Chase and fellow teammate Terrace Marshall were both nominated to the Fred Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Thursday. Chase is coming off of an outstanding sophomore season, leading the Tigers with 1,780 yards receiving and 20 touchdowns. Marshall had a solid season as well for the defending national champions with 671 yards and 13 scores.
The Harvey, Louisiana native hs a chance to join Justin Blackmon (in 2010 and 2011) and Michael Crabtree (in 2007 and 2008) as the only receivers to win the Biletnikoff Award in consecutive seasons.
