Clemson, SC—Clemson quarterback Cullen Harper has been named one of 10 semifinalists for the Johnny Unitas Award. The honor is presented each year to the top senior quarterback in the nation and is named after all-time great Johnny Unitas who played quarterback at Louisville as a collegian, and for the Baltimore Colts in the NFL. Last year’s winner was Matt Ryan of Boston College.

The 10 remaining candidates for the 2008 award are Tom Brandstater of Fresno State, Chase Clement of Rice, Chase Daniel of Missouri, Cullen Harper of Clemson, Graham Harrell of Texas Tech, Brian Johnson of Utah, Curtis Painter of Purdue, John Parker Wilson of Alabama, Pat White of West Virginia and Drew Willy of Buffalo.

Harper has completed 114 of 186 passes for 1291 yards and six touchdowns so far this year. He has a passing efficiency of 123.0 in ACC games, first among league quarterbacks. Saturday he threw two touchdown passes against Georgia Tech and now has 35 for his career, tied for third in Clemson history. He trails only Charlie Whitehurst and Woody Dantzler in that area. He is also first in school history in career completion percentage and is second in passing efficiency.
