Lamar Jackson may now be a NFL QB after being selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round, but he just received another college accolade; this time from the ACC.
An ❗ on an incredible @UofLFootball career.
Congrats to @Lj_era8, the ACC's Male Athlete of the Year!

Lamar was bestowed with the Anthony J. McKevlin award for Male Athlete of the Year. He was given the honor after having a junior year in which he had nearly identical statistics to his sophomore, Heisman winning season.
He also became the first player in NCAA history with back to back seasons of 3500 yards passing and 1500 yards rushing.
