The University of Louisville football team has an open date Saturday. A good day to check out Lamar Jackson who has committed to play for UofL next season.

Jackson, a 6-foot-3, 202-pound senior quarterback at Boynton Beach High School near Orlando, ran for five touchdowns and passed for two others in leading his team to a 63-58 win over Coconut Creek Friday night. He ran three yards with six seconds left to give his team the win. Boynton Beach is 9-0 this season under his leadership.

Not a polished video by any means. They finally fix the camera  at the 33 minute mark. You can’t miss Jackson, he’s No. 7, the tallest player on the field, calling signals for the team in the white jerseys. He runs 50 yards for a TD on the first play of the game.
