Mason Rudolph Wins Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph was named the victor of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award on Thursday.

The Unitas Award factors in character, citizenship, scholastic achievement and leader qualities in addition to football performance.

"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 statement. "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".

Rudolph leads the nation in yards passing with 4,553 and has thrown 35 touchdown passes for the 18th-ranked Cowboys. "I am humbled and thankful to everyone who helped me get to this point". It is also hard to place the blame for any of Oklahoma State's defeats at the hands of Rudolph and the offense, considering the unit averaged 45.5 points per game against ranked opponents.

Rudolph was the selection over Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield in balloting for the award that goes to the nation's top senior quarterback.

"Mason represents our football program the right way", said Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy.

On the field, Rudolph is the winningest quarterback in OSU history and owns at least 50 school records.

Past Golden Arm Award winners include Peyton Manning (Tennessee, 1997); Carson Palmer (Southern California, 2002); Eli Manning (Ole Miss, 2003); Matt Ryan (Boston College, 2007); Andrew Luck (Stanford, 2011), Marcus Mariota (Oregon, 2014) and Deshaun Watson (Clemson, 2016).
