MANHASSET, N.Y., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Kellen Winslow of Miami has been named the winner of the John Mackey Award, which is presented to the nation's top tight end.

Winslow, a Mackey finalist last season as a sophomore, leads the Hurricanes in receptions with 55 for 557 yards and one touchdown.

"All of us at the University of Miami feel that Kellen is the best tight end in the country and we are certainly happy to see him recognized as such," said Coach Larry Coker. "Kellen is one of the most competitive and complete tight ends I've ever been associated with."

The other finalists were Kris Wilson of Pittsburgh and Ben Troupe of Florida.

Past winners include Iowa's Dallas Clark (2002), Colorado's Daniel Graham (2001), and Tim Stratton of Purdue (2000).
