Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph wins 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph has just been awarded the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award is annually given to the best quarterback in college football who additionally shows the best character, citizenship, scholastic achievement, and leadership qualities. Rudolph threw for 4,553 yards, averaging 379.4 passing yards per game, and accumulated 45 touchdowns this season.

Mason Rudolph is the first Oklahoma State player to win the award. Past award winners consist of Deshaun Watson (2016), Marcus Mariota (2014), and Andrew Luck (2011). Rudolph beat out Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, Ohio State’s JT Barrett, and others to win it.

“Winning the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award is a meaningful honor for me because this is a reflection of how I was raised,” Rudolph said in a release. “I was taught from a young age that there is more to life than football and I’m thankful to the committee for selecting me. I am humbled and thankful to everyone who helped me get to this point.”

He will receive the award at a ceremony on Friday, December 8th in downtown Baltimore
