2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List Revealed

|

It is officially college football award watch season and the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award is the latest honor to name its preseason watch list.

This year’s list features 47 of the top signal-callers from across the nation, who must be seniors or fourth-year juniors to qualify.

“The Golden Arm Award values character, citizenship, integrity, leadership, and sportsmanship – characteristics that were displayed by my father. These attributes were every bit as important as the quarterback’s completion rate or the number of touchdowns scored,” says John C. Unitas, Jr., President of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation, Inc. in a statement.

“Despite his many accolades, my Dad never forgot his humble beginnings and that won him a permanent place in the hearts of everyone who ever knew him.”
