Colorado State star sophomore wide receiver Rashard “Hollywood” Higgins has been named a semifinalist for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose award, the award’s selection committee announced Monday. 

The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award is given annually to the nation’s outstanding Division I offensive player who was either born in Texas, graduated from a Texas high school or played at a Texas-based junior college or four-year college.

Higgins, who burst onto the scene last year as a freshman, leads all FBS receivers with 1,447 receiving yards, 15 receiving touchdowns and 144.7 receiving yards per game. The native of Mesquite, Texas, set the CSU record for consecutive games with at least 100 receiving yards with six, which is the longest active streak in NCAA FBS. On the year, he has eight games with at least 100 receiving yards, which is also a single-season school record.

Higgins is one of two Mountain West players among the 16 semifinalists, joining Boise State’s Jay Ajayi.

Finalists will be announced on Dec. 10 and on Jan. 14 the winner will be announced at the award banquet in Tyler, Texas.
