had a relatively short career, it’s been filled with some pretty incredible accomplishments so far.
Jackson played college ball at the University of Louisville under head coach Bobby Petrino. In 2016, in only his sophomore season, the young quarterback was named Heisman Trophy winner. Across a three-year collegiate career, he managed over 9,000 passing yards with 69 touchdowns.
At the end of his junior year, in which he was named third runner-up for the Heisman once again, Jackson declared his eligibility for the 2018 NFL draft, where he was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round at the 32nd overall pick.
Originally intended as a backup to Joe Flacco, Jackson found himself thrust into the limelight in the middle of his rookie year when Flacco went on injured reserve midseason. Jackson went on to lead the Ravens to the playoffs despite his lack of professional experience.
The following season, in 2019, Jackson came into his own as an NFL quarterback. In the offseason, the Ravens scrapped their existing offense and built a new one from the ground up centered on Jackson’s skill set. After a series of impressive wins, including staggering passing yardage, the Ravens were ultimately shut down in the first round of the playoffs but not before Jackson cemented himself as the 2019 MVP.
Lamar Jackson's fashion style is reflective of his young and fun personality. Bold colors and patterns are often go-to styles for Lamar. Lamar is often seen sporting some of his perfectly blinged out custom chains, with the most common being his "era 8" logo.
Lamar played Pop Warner football against Marquise Brown.
