The Biletnikoff Award is presented annually to the nation’s outstanding college football receiver (the award defines receiver as any player who catches a pass) by the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. (TQCF), creator and sponsor of the Biletnikoff Award. Any FBS (1-A) college player who catches the football through the forward pass is eligible (wide receiver, running back, tight end) to be selected as the award winner, although every winner since 1994 has been a wide receiver.

The TQC Foundation awards over $750,000 in scholarships every year to Florida high school seniors who have overcome significant physical, emotional, mental, or environmental barriers to achieve at the highest academic and extracurricular levels.

The Biletnikoff Award trophy has won a number of national awards for aesthetic beauty and is considered the most beautiful trophy in college sports.

The annual banquet has attracted the finest keynote speakers in America and has been hailed by keynoters and others, most recently Larry Csonka, as the "best banquet in college sports."

The award web site at biletnikoffaward.com has a large amount of information and a Biletnikoff Award FanVote and Forum for discussion of timely topics in sports.

A national selection committee consisting of over 215 journalists, commentators, broadcasters, and former players selects the award winner. No member of the board of trustees of the foundation has a vote.
