HOUSTON - A year after leading the University of Houston football team, senior wide receiver Patrick Edwards placed his name among the nation's best when he was named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List on Thursday.

Edwards was the Cougars' top receiver in 2010, posting team highs of 71 catches for 1,100 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Hearne, Texas, native ranked among the Conference USA top-five individual leaders in all three categories and placed 15th nationally with 91.7 receiving yards per game.

He finished with five 100-yard receiving games a year ago, including a career-high 177 yards on 10 receptions during the regular-season finale at Big 12 member Texas Tech.

Edwards was one of 75 receivers across the nation who made the initial cut. The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the nation's outstanding receiver by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation

PRESEASON HONOREES: Edwards was the latest Cougar to be recognized this preseason. Earlier this week, senior quarterback Case Keenum was named to the Watch List for the Maxwell Award, given annually to the nation's top offensive player.
