LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech senior quarterback Nic Shimonek has been named to the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Watch List.

In limited action last season, Shimonek completed 38-of-58 passes for 464 yards and six touchdowns, with just one interception.

In 2016, Shimonek's breakout performance was against Kansas when Patrick Mahomes left early in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. Shimonek entered the game with Texas Tech ahead 28-19 and proceeded to rack up 271 yards and four touchdowns through the air as Tech rolled the Jayhawks 55-19.

The last Red Raider to win the Johnny Unitas Award was Graham Harrell in 2008. Shimonek's appearance on the watch list marks the second-straight year a Red Raider has been named, as Mahomes made the list a year ago.
