Louisville, KY-Clemson quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is one of 22 senior quarterbacks named to the top candidates list for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. The award goes to the top senior quarterback in the nation each year and is presented by the Frank Camp Chapter of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Educational Foundation.

Whitehurst is one of four ACC quarterbacks on the list as he also joins Jay Davis of NC State, Marques Hagans of Virginia and Quinton Porter of Boston College.

Whitehurst will be entering his four season as Clemson's starting quarterback. He has started each of the last 29 Clemson games and the Tigers are 18-11 in those games. He has passed for
7182 yards in his career so far, tops among all Division I quarterbacks entering the 2005 season.

Earlier, Whitehurst was named as a preseason top 50 candidate for the Maxwell Award, which goes to the top all-around player in college football, and was a preseason candidate for the Davey O'Brien Award, which goes to the nation's top quarterback.
