The Hokies keep getting the national attention in form of preseason watch lists. On Wednesday, the 6'7" Hodges was placed on the John Mackey Award watch list. The award is given annually to the nation's top tight end. You can take a look at the full watch list by clicking here. Hodges had a big year in 2015. He caught 6 TD's and ran for another. There was plenty of speculation around Blacksburg that Hodges may declare for the N.F.L. draft. Fortunately for Hokies everywhere, Hodges has decided to stay put for now.
