LAMAR JACKSON, LOUISVILLE
Sophomore, Quarterback, Boynton Beach, FL/Boynton Beach HS
Lamar Jackson followed up on his week one heroics and accounted for an ACC-record 610 yards from scrimmage in 13th-ranked Louisville’s 62-28 victory over Syracuse. Jackson completed 20-of-39 passes for 411 yards and one touchdown, and rushed for 199 yards and four more scores as the Cardinals improved to 2-0.
Notes: Lamar Jackson is the second player to repeat as Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week since the award was started in 2004. Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson won the award in consecutive weeks (Sept. 5 and 12, 2010).
Lamar Jackson is the third Louisville player (and first offensive honoree) to earn Walter Camp Player of the Week honors, joining former Cardinal standouts Elvis Dumervil (Sept. 6, 2005) and Gerod Holliman (Nov. 9, 2014).
Lamar Jackson was responsible for a FIVE Touchdowns & 610 Yards of Offense in UofL’s 62-28 win over the Orange. The foundation also honored Ohio State’s Corner Marshon Lattimore who recorded two interceptions, including one he returned 40 yards for a touchdown vs. Tulsa as this week’s Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week.
