I should probably put a date in the title of this post, because it could definitely happen a couple more times this season. Louisville freshman QB Lamar Jackson was named ACC Rookie of the Week on Monday by the ACC. Here is what they had to say about him.
ROOKIE – Lamar Jackson, Louisville, Fr., QB, 6-3, 196, Boynton Beach, Fla.
Jackson rushed for 184 yards and two scores while throwing for a career-high 212 yards and another touchdown in Saturday’s 45-3 win over Samford. In his second career start, Jackson scored on runs of 13 and 14 yards and tossed a 36-yard TD pass. His 184 yards rushing are the most in a single game by a Louisville quarterback.
The Cards play at NC State on Saturday at 12:30. Saying this is a big game is a slight understatement.
