2012 Biletnikoff Award Watch List: Syracuse's Alec Lemon Makes List

The 2012 Biletnikoff Award watch list was announced Tuesday, and Syracuse Orange senior wide receiver Alec Lemon was one of players who made the list. The Biletnikoff Award is given annually to college football's top wide receiver by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc..

Last season, Lemon led the Orange in about every receiving category, as he collected a school-record 68 receptions for a team-high 834 yards. Lemon's numbers helped him earn All-Big East Conference Second Team honors.

Currently, Lemon ranks fifth in school history with 127 receptions and is ranked ninth with 11 touchdown grabs. He will enter the season as the Orange's top wide out, however, teammate Marcus Sales is expected to be the SU's play-making flanker.

Lemon joins Syracuse offensive linemen Justin Pugh as Orange players to be named to preseason watch lists.
