Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph wins Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph is taking home some hardware after a remarkable regular-season for the Cowboys.

Rudolph was announced the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award on Thursday. The award is presented to the junior/senior quarterback that best demonstrates excellence on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

Rudolph led all FBS teams in 2017 with 4,533 passing yards — averaging 379.4 per game. He was also deemed “Oklahoma State’s most active player in community service activities.”

Rudolph owns a 31-9 record as Oklahoma State’s starting quarterback, which includes 10 halftime-comeback victories.

The award has been presented on an annual basis since 1987. Past winners of the award include noteworthy college and NFL quarterbacks including Carson Palmer, Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and Matt Ryan.

Rudolph even earned some congratulations from TCU head coach Gary Patterson on Twitter following the announcement.

Rudolph will receive the award on Dec. 8 in a ceremony in Baltimore, Md.
