The week long festivities for Graham Harrell continued in Baltimore this afternoon as the Johnny Unitas Foundation rolled out the red carpet for the Texas Tech senior quarterback who was named the 2008 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award Winner, which is presented annually to the nation's top senior signal caller.
Harrell, alongside his parents Sam and Kathy Harrell, was greeted at the Baltimore/Washington International Airport and then escorted to the Baltimore Sports Museum located at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. While at the museum, they were greeted by NFL greats Raymond Berry and Sam Huff who were part of the "Greatest Game Every Played" and will be part of tonight's ceremony. The Harrell's were treated to a personal tour by Johnny Unitas Jr. as he showed them through the museum that holds memorabilia of his father's playing career with the Baltimore Colts.
The museum also features memorabilia from the legendary Babe Ruth and everyone in attendance got to hold a bat used by the Babe during a game.
Harrell will be honored this evening as the 2008 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner at a ceremony to be held at the Tremont Grand Hotel in downtown Baltimore.
