Tallahassee, FL - The Tallahassee Quarterback Club (TQC) Foundation, Inc., the Florida-based creator and sponsor of the prestigious Biletnikoff Award, announces that unanimous 1st team All-America receiver DeVonta Smith of Alabama is the 2020 winner of the Biletnikoff Award. Tonight, DeVonta Smith was introduced as the winner on The Home Depot College Football Awards. The other outstanding finalists are consensus 1st team All-America Elijah Moore of Ole Miss and unanimous 1st team All-America Kyle Pitts of Florida.
The secure and confidential electronic voting by the distinguished members of the Biletnikoff Award National Selection Committee was conducted from December 22 through January 1, and certified by a prominent CPA firm.
The Biletnikoff Award annually recognizes the college football season's outstanding FBS receiver. Any player, regardless of position (wide receiver, tight end, slot or inside receiver, wingback, and running back) who catches a pass is eligible for the award. As such, the Biletnikoff Award recognizes college football's outstanding receiver, not merely college football's outstanding wide receiver.
