    Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List


    HOUSTON - University of Houston senior quarterback Case Keenum recently was named to the 2010 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List.

    Keenum was one of only 22 players to appear on the national Watch List. The Golden Arm Award is presented annually to the top senior quarterback by the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Foundation and acknowledges performance on the field as well as character, citizenship, integrity and those who honor the game.

    This was only the most recent preseason honor for Keenum. He was honored as a Favorite for both the College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Year and the College Football Performance Awards Quarterback Trophy.

    In addition, the Abilene, Texas, native has been named to several Preseason All-America Teams.

    Keenum and other Cougar student-athletes are expected to earn additional preseason honors and be named to other national award watch lists during the next few weeks.

    A year ago, Keenum led the nation in total offense for the second straight season, averaging more than 400 yards per game. He posted a school-record 5,671 passing yards with 44 touchdowns and helped lead the Cougars to a 10-4 overall record and fifth consecutive bowl appearance.

    With his passing yardage, he became only the second player in NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision history with multiple 5,000-yard passing seasons during his career. He enters the 2010 season on the cusp of setting many NCAA Division I-FBS passing and total offense career records.
