“My time in Louisville has produced some of the best memories of my life,” Jackson wrote Friday morning on Twitter. “I have had the pleasure of being in the presence of some of the best professors, coaches, advisers, training staff, athletes and fans, in the nation. With their help, I have been able to grow not only as a quarterback, but as a teammate, student, and most of all, a man.”
He’s the first player in college football history to record at least 3,500 passing yards and 1,500 rushing yards in consecutive seasons, and he set Louisville records for total offense (13,175 yards), rushing yards (4,132), rushing touchdowns (50) and total touchdowns (119).
Congratulations to Lamar Jackson but I really think his best days are behind him. If this isn’t a Vince Young 2.0 then I don’t know what is. They are legit the same player and like we found out with Young – you cannot run around the NFL like you can in college football.
Sorry Lamar, I see a lot of backup quarterbacking in your future and when you do get to play make sure you slide when you run, this isn’t College Football anymore.
