Hall of Fame coach and former Heisman winner, Steve Spurrier has nothing but great things to say about Lamar Jackson. Not only does he think Jackson will be a first round draft pick, he believes he will be a great NFL quarterback. You can read everything he had to say below thanks to the Courier Journal.
Sure, Saturday night did not go the way any UofL fan wanted it to. Seeing Lamar lose the Heisman (by coming in third!?) But our friends at All Sports DACC bring up some great reminders of why UofL fans should still be extremely proud of Lamar and the year he had.
Lamar Jackson has a lot on his plate at the moment. Finals just took place, he is currently in New York enjoying being a finalist for the Heisman for the second year in a row, preparing for Mississippi State in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Yet, we live in a world that is always looking ahead, so people are ready to find out if Lamar will be playing on Saturday or Sundays next year.
Lamar Jackson, whenever a cardinal fan hears, reads or sees his name, their faces light up. Rightfully so. Lamar is currently in New York preparing for the Heisman ceremony, hoping to become only the second person to ever win the Heisman twice. Throughout all of his interviews, one thing has remained constant in the craziness, the love he has for his teammates and coaches. Not only is Lamar a once in a lifetime player, he is a once in a lifetime young man. No matter what the voters decide, I want Lamar on my team, every day, all day.
Our friends at the ACC Digital Network put together an awesome highlight reel of Lamar Jackson. Help yourself get through the end of the week and watch the greatness unfold.
