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.
With one more game left in his Cardinal career (probably), Lamar Jackson has done more in those 3 years than most do in 4. He has shattered record after record, and has time to put his final stamp on an outstanding collegiate career.
Congratulations are in order for Lamar Jackson! He was named today to the Maxwell Award semifinalist list. This is an award he won last year and honors America’s college player of the year.
