‘Tis the season for preseason award watch lists, and Jake has made two of the most prestigious lists for quarterbacks. Jake has been named as a possible future recipient for the Johnny Unitas “Golden Arm Award“, an honor given to the nation’s best quarterback. In order to be considered for the trophy the player must not only have a great year on the field but must also ‘demonstrate good citizenship off the field and maintain the ideals of good character, morals, and values that Johnny Unitas upheld in his lifetime and career.’
And, recently released, the Davey O’Brien Foundation announced that Jake has also made their watch list for the 2010 season, the second consecutive season he has been named to the list. The Davey O’Brien award goes to the quarterback who displays the best balance of on and off the field performance.
Both award winners will be announced shortly after the completion of the 2010 regular college football season.
