Hunter Henry was named the winner of the 2015 John Mackey Award as college football's best tight end Wednesday.

Henry leads the SEC in receptions (46) and yards (647) by a tight end. He also has three touchdowns.

In the Razorbacks' 53-52 overtime win over Ole Miss, Henry made one of college football's plays of the year, throwing the lateral to Alex Collins that kept their overtime drive alive.

He is the second Arkansas player to win the award since it was created in 2000. D.J. Williams won in 2010.

It is the third honor in two days for the Little Rock native. He was named first-team all-America by USA Today and first-team all-SEC by the conference's coaches Tuesday.
