Nunnsense: “Unstoppable” A Lamar Jackson Heisman Tribute Video

img_4873

Lamar Jackson put up numbers in a regular season that we have never seen before. Before the season started, we had high expectations based on his Music City Bowl performance, but nobody expected what we all witnessed. Coming into the first game of this season vs Charlotte, sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson had not started two consecutive games. Despite that fact, Lamar tied an ACC single game record with 6 passing touchdowns and tied the ACC record of 8 touchdowns responsible for. He would then go on to set another ACC single game record with 610 total yards vs Syracuse. 

Lamar didn’t continue his absurdly ridiculous pace of 8 touchdowns per game all year but he did finish the regular season with an ACC record of 51 touchdowns. He also finished the regular season as the only player in FBS history with 3,300 yards passing and 1,500 yards rushing. Lamar was also the first player in FBS history with 30 passing touchdowns and 20 rushing touchdowns in a regular season and third FBS player to do so in a season including post season play. (Despite the fact that Lamar hasn’t played his bowl game yet)

Lamar’s season totals of 3390 passing yards, 1538 rushing yards and 51 touchdowns were good enough to win him many national awards. The most prestigious was the Heisman trophy. Along with being voted a consensus first-team AP All-American, Lamar won the Maxwell Award  (nation’s best player), Walter Camp National Player of the Year, Associated Press National Player of the Year, Sporting News National Player of the Year,  ACC Player of the Year (media and coaches) and the ACC Offensive Player of the Year (media and coaches).

It’s been a month since the regular season ended and now Lamar has one last game of his Heisman winning season. We would all love to end this year on a positive note so let’s get back into football mode and get fired up for one last victory of this 2016 season. I put together a little Heisman tribute video to help you get ready for the Saturday morning victory over LSU in the Citrus Bowl.

As always, GO CARDS!
