Rory "Busta" Anderson has been a vital part of Steve Spurrier's offense at South Carolina and his work hasn't gone unnoticed.

Anderson started 13 games and played in 38 over the past three seasons. In those contests, he has hauled in 39 passes for 694 receiving yards with eight touchdowns.

The Mackey award has been won by Heath Miller (2004), Kellen Winslow II (2003, Dallas Clark (2002) and a host of other tight ends who have gone on to play in the National Football League.
