Lamar Jackson Should Be An NFL Quarterback

Lamar Jackson

The 2016 Heisman winner, Lamar Jackson flew under as many radars possible coming into the 2017 season. Every person imaginable overlooked him, completely forgot about the record-breaking season he posted last year. Jordan Heck with Sporting News and Eric Galko with Optimum Scouting, break down why Jackson deserves every ounce of praise he has received finally. It seems Cardinal fans are not the only ones who remember why he is the best quarterback in the country, not a wide receiver.

Cards In The NFL

The National Football League (NFL) has become America’s past time. The Superbowl is one of the most watched televised events year after year. The halftime show has become so iconic, that even Queen Bey herself (Beyonce) has paid to perform during it.

At the University of Louisville, we have the opportunity to cheer on a really good team every year. But we do not have a professional team in our backyard. So this gives us the unique chance to (almost) pick who our favorite NFL team is. Some of us have family ties to certain teams, others had a favorite collegiate player that they followed into their professional careers. Whatever the case may be, Louisville has a wide variety of NFL fandom roaming our streets.

The legacy of James Quick is one that can be interpreted in many different ways. It all depends if compare his college career to the expectations most people had for him or if you compare his actual statistics and contributions during his time at Louisville to every other receiver that came before him.

It all began at Trinity High School when James became the first-ever freshman to start a game for the storied football powerhouse.  He also won the state championship in the 200 meter dash in both his freshman and sophomore years. James became the first player in Kentucky high school football history to score a touchdown in four straight state championship games (’09 -’12) and had received offers to play at almost every major college school.
