Video — Austin Seferian-Jenkins

We had a chance to talk to UW tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins after practice today for the first time since it was revealed that he had not won the Mackey Award, which each year honors what it considers the best tight end in the country.

The award instead went to Tyler Eifert of Notre Dame.

So what was ASJ’s reaction?

“It’s an honor just to be considered a top three tight end in the country,” he said. “Tyler Eifert is a great tight end and he’s the best tight end in college football — to them. I’m happy for him. He’s a phenomenal player on a phenomenal team and I feel blessed just to be in consideration for the award.”

Seferian-Jenkins caught 63 passes for 791 yards to Eifert’s 44 for 624, which didn’t escape the attention of UW fans.

Seferian-Jenkins, though, said “His team was undefeated. He’s a good player. He’s a real talent. He can block. He can catch. He can do it all. He deserves the award.”

Asked if coming close but not winning this year will be a motivation for next season, Seferian-Jenkins said: “I would love to win the award one day. But that’s not really what I’m focusing on. I just want to win and help this team get as many wins as possible and I think that’s the most satisfying thing anyone on this team would want.”

Here’s all of ASJ’s session with the media today:
