Brian Vogler is on the college football awards radar.

The junior tight end was named to the Mackey Award watch list, which goes the top tight end in college football.

No Alabama player has won the Mackey Award.

Vogler has three catches in three years at Alabama but will be expected to take on an expanded role this season. Last year's tight end, Michael Williams was drafted by the Detroit Lions in April's NFL Draft.
