Wilson Named NFF College Scholar-Athlete Winner
Tennessee State University football senior Devin Wilson was recently honored as a Collegiate Scholar-Athlete winner by the National Football Foundation of Middle Tennessee earlier this month.

Wilson, a wide receiver for the Big Blue, was just one of seven collegiate recipients at the 46th annual banquet. The three-year letterman holds a 3.15 GPA and is on track to earn his degree in Human Performance and Sports Sciences.

"Devin is a true student-athlete," said TSU Coach Rod Reed. "He works hard off the field as well as on the field. He is a great role model for young kids and spends time reaching out to our youth."

The Nashville native and Pope John Paul II product snagged a team-best 48 catches for 586 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games last season. Wilson's most memorable catch of the 2011 campaign was a 67-yard strike from Michael German at Air Force on Sept. 24.

Wilson was presented his award by Baltimore Colts legend Raymond Berry. Berry caught 631 receptions for 9,275 yards and 68 touchdowns during his career that lasted from 1955 until 1967.
