WLWL: Daniels makes Unitas Golden Arm list



USF's first football practice of the fall is about to start, and senior quarterback B.J. Daniels has another entry into our Watch List Watch List, making the cut as one of 29 players on the preseason list for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.


Daniels, also on the Davey O'Brien watch list, is one of two Big East passers on the list, along with Syracuse's Ryan Nassib, and one of two from a Florida school, with Florida State's E.J. Manuel. Daniels is on pace to become the Big East's career leader in total offense this season.

USF has had a good presence in the preseason watch lists, as can be expected with a strong senior class. To recap:

-- Daniels on the Unitas and O'Brien lists

-- kicker Maikon Bonani on the Lou Groza list

-- defensive end Ryne Giddins on the Hendricks and Lombardi lists

-- linebacker DeDe Lattimore on the Lombardi list

-- tackle Mark Popek on the Outland list
