Lamar Jackson picking up weekly honors is something we’re just going to have to get used to. For the second consecutive week the sophomore quarterback has been named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
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.
Jackson is just the second offensive player to win the award in consecutive weeks, joining former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson who won it back-to-back weeks in 2010.
In two games this season, Jackson has 13 total touchdowns (7-passing 6-rushing). He’s thrown for 697 yards and rushed for 318 yards. Jackson’s 318 rushing yards through two weeks is the third most in the country and the most by a quarterback.<
