Time to clear out some more space in the Notre Dame trophy case.

Tyler Eifert, who led the team with 44 receptions for 624 yards and four touchdowns, was honored Wednesday with the John Mackey Award, which is given to the tight end who best exemplifies the play, sportsmanship, academics and community values of NFL Hall of Fame tight end John Mackey.

In addition to the Mackey Award, Eifert also has been named second-team All-American by Walter Camp and CBSSports.com. Eifert, who is well known for his blocking ability and receiving prowess, has totaled 134 receptions, 1,779 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns in his career, making him the all-time career leader in receptions and receiving yards by a Notre Dame tight end.

Stanford's Zach Ertz and Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins were the other two finalists.
