Bryce Young Lands on Golden Arm Award Watch List
Alabama quarterback Bryce Young landed on the 2022 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List.
The award is given to the best upperclassmen quarterback in the nation.
"The preseason Watch List, semifinalists, finalists, and award recipient are selected by the distinguished Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Selection Committee, a group of prominent college football journalists, commentators, announcers, and former players. The award annually recognizes the top senior or upperclassman quarterback set to graduate with their class. Candidates are chosen based on player performance on-and-off the field as we head into the 2022 college football season," says its website.
The Heisman winner had a record-breaking sophomore season, going 366-of-547 for 4,872 yards, 47 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He broke the single-season record of passing touchdowns and yards in program history.
Young is also on the 2022 Manning Award Watch List, 2022 Coaches Preseason All-SEC First-Team, and the 2022 Walter Camp Watch List, as well as being a favorite to win the 2022 Heisman Award.
Alabama kicks off its season on Saturday, September 3, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. CST against Utah State. Coverage will be on Tide 100.9 and the Tide 100.9 app which is free to download in the App Store.
