As the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List paired itself down, the WVU quarterback remains on the list. Daniels is now among a group of 25, which has now been reduced from 75 at the start of the season.

After deciding to transfer to WVU to finish out his college career, Daniels has thrown for 950 yards, competed 64.9% of his passes and has 7 touchdowns with only 2 interceptions through 4 games.
This award is given annually to the nation’s top upperclassmen quarterback in college football. Candidates are judged on accomplishments on the field as well as on their character, scholastic achievement and leadership qualities.
When Daniels was among 75 players on the list, it was the largest selection pool in the history of the award.
The 2022 award winner will be presented the Golden Arm Award trophy by The Johnny Unitas Educational Foundation President, John Unitas, Jr., at the Golden Arm Award banquet and celebration on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
