Big CONGRATULATIONS to Irish superstar receiver Golden Tate for winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver! After a season of impossible catches, unbelievable touches and breathtaking plays, we knew that Golden was 24k on the field. Thankfully, the greater sports world has shown their appreciation as well.
AND Tennessee-native Tate was named to the Walter Camp All-American Team, an honor that the Irish last saw in 2002 with standout cornerback Shane Walton. Golden is ND's first offensive player to receive Walter Camp first-team honors since offensive tackle Mike Rosenthal in 1998, and the first wide receiver since since Raghib Ismail in 1990.
If you just can't get enough of the wow wideout, posted below is a highlight video of some of his most impressive plays!
Thank you, Mr. Tate for adding your Golden touch to an otherwise...rough football season. Go get 'em in the big leagues!
