As all UofL fans know, Lamar Jackson was not a finalist for a couple of prominent college football awards; the Davey O’Brien Award for the best NCAA QB and the Maxwell Award for best all-around college player. However, Lamar is a finalist for another prestigious player of the year award.

Jackson has been named 1 of 5 finalists for the Walter Camp Award; along with Saquon Barkley, Bryce Love, Baker Mayfield, and Rashaad Penny. He won the award last year and now has a chance to be a two-time winner which has only been done 3 times previously. The other two-time winners were Colt McCoy, Archie Griffin, and OJ Simpson.

The Walter Camp Award is given annually to the collegiate player of the year. The award winner is decided upon by a group of both NCAA Division 1 FBS head coaches and sports information directors under the auspices of the Walter Camp Football Foundation per Wikipedia.
