FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas tight end C.J. O’Grady has been named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week after his performance against Texas A&M last Saturday.
O’Grady, a senior from Fayetteville, recorded a career-high 91 receiving yards on eight catches in Arlington against the Aggies, leading the team in both receptions and yards for the first time this season.
It was the second consecutive year O’Grady has paced the team in receiving yards against Texas A&M, posting 77 on three catches last year.
In 2018, he was the team’s leading receiver in three games, also doing so in back-to-back contests against Vanderbilt (Oct. 27) and LSU (Nov. 10).
Through five games in 2019, O’Grady leads SEC tight ends in receiving yards with 243 yards and ranks seventh in the country in the category.
He also paces the conference in receptions (18) and yards after catch (122) at the position, sitting at ninth in both spots in the NCAA.
O’Grady and the Razorbacks will return to action on Saturday, Oct. 12, against Kentucky at Kroger Field in Lexington at 6:30 p.m. on SEC Network.
