Purdue senior tight end Gabe Holmes has been named to the John Mackey Award preseason watch list.
    
The Mackey Award is presented annually to the outstanding collegiate tight end in the nation.
    
Holmes had a career-high 25 receptions for 158 yards and two touchdowns in 2012. In 35 career games, Holmes has 37 receptions for 305 yards and three scores.
    
Purdue announced Holmes' selection to the watch list Tuesday.
    
Former Purdue tight end Tim Stratton won the Mackey Award in 2000 when he caught 58 passes for 605 yards and two touchdowns. Current Miami Dolphin Dustin Keller was a semifinalist for the award at Purdue in 2007.
