Former Clemson quarterback is named the North squad Offensive MVP at the Senior Bowl.

Former Clemson quarterback Charlie Whitehurst closed down his college career with a bang when he was named the offensive MVP of the North Squad Saturday afternoon at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Whitehurst completed 7-of-9 passes for 90 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown to Colorado tight end Joe Klopfenstein in the North's 31-14 win over the South.

Whitehurst, a three-year starter and son of former NFL quarterback David Whitehurst, left Clemson the holder of 42 different Clemson passing and total offense records, including career passing yardage with 9,656, career completions with 817 and career touchdown passes with 49.

The Senior Bowl is the nation's premier pre-draft showcase, annually featuring the top senior NFL draft prospects on teams coached by the entire coaching staffs of two National Football League teams. Senior Bowl practices are also attended by over 700 NFL general managers, head coaches, scouts and other front office personnel each year.
