FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Senior quarterback Garrett Grayson was added to another preseason watch list on Wednesday when the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Foundation announced its 27-man watch list.
The Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award is presented annually to the top senior quarterback. The award acknowledges performance on the field, but it goes beyond completion percentage and touchdowns. The award also values character, citizenship, integrity and those who honor the game.
Grayson, who is just one of two players from the Mountain West to earn recognition, started all 14 games for the Rams in 2013 and has started 22 in his career, including the final three games of his true freshman in 2011 and the first five of his sophomore season before leaving the lineup because of injury. In his record-breaking 2013 season he completed 62.1 percent of his passes and tied the school record for touchdown passes in a season with 23. In addition to a new single-season passing record his broke the school records for pass attempts (478) and completions (297) in a season, the latter ranking No. 14 among all FBS quarterbacks.
On Nov. 2, 2013 against Boise State, Grayson set a new Colorado State standard for single-game total offense, tallying 445 (397 passing, 48 rushing) to break the previous mark held by Bradlee Van Pelt (416), with Van Pelt in attendance. For the season he paired with 1,741-yard rusher Kapri Bibbs to form the first tandem in school history to pass for more than 3,000 and rush for more than 1,500 in the same season, and were the only FBS teammates in 2013 to top 3,200 and 1,500 in their categories.
The award will be presented on Dec. 12 in Baltimore, Md.
Earlier this offseason, Grayson was named to the Davey O’Brien and Walter Camp Player of the Year watch lists.
