Charles Jones II

Redshirt senior tight end has played in 40 career games

NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University football redshirt senior tight end Charles Jones II has been named to the John Mackey Award Preseason Watch List for the second straight season. The award is given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end.

The award recipient is selected by vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee and the 2018 Mackey Award recipient will be announced on Dec. 5 and then presented live on Dec. 6 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU.

Jones enters the 2018 season having played in 40 career games, earning 22 career starts. He also has totaled over 50 career receptions and over 400 career receiving yards.

NFL Hall of Fame member John Mackey is considered to be the best to have played the tight end position. A tight end by whom all others are measured, Mackey was a role model on and off the field as demonstrated by his Super Bowl win, his commitment to community and his place in history as the first President of the NFLPA.

The John Mackey Award presented since 2000, recognizes fifteen alumni that have played in the NFL: two-time Super Bowl Champion Daniel Graham (2001), 2006 Super Bowl Champion Dallas Clark (2002), Kellen Winslow II (2003), two-time Super Bowl Champion Heath Miller (2004), Marcedes Lewis (2005) of the Green Bay Packers, 2008 Super Bowl Champion Matt Spaeth (2006), Fred Davis (2007), Chase Coffman (2008), D.J.
