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.

Is this hyperbole on my part? Perhaps. Then again, it is hard to deny what mine eyes have seen. Lamar Jackson is a Heisman person off the field and a Heisman player on it.
