Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson rushed for four touchdowns and threw for another as the Cardinals destroyed second-ranked Florida State, 63-20. He’s put up video game numbers through three games, accounting for 1,461 total yards and 18 touchdowns, vaulting himself into the Heisman Trophy conversation in the process.
Today’s nationally-televised gashing of the Seminoles was his coming-out party, with many just now realizing how much talent this sophomore possesses. It’s easy to get carried away overstating a player’s greatness in September so we should take a beat before making any bold proclamations.
Besides, Mike Vick has already authored the strongest Jackson take.
That is high praise, considering Vick was one of the most exciting and dominant college quarterbacks to ever play the game.
This is a downright frightening revelation for Louisville’s future opponents if there’s even a sliver of truth to the claim.
