If you think Lamar Jackson has been unstoppable as a quarterback for Louisville, you should've seen him in high school.

During his senior season at Boynton Beach (Florida), Jackson threw for 999 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 664 yards and 12 touchdowns in just seven games, putting up highlight-reel plays in bunches.

On ESPN's Recruiting Nation, Jackson was ranked as a three-star prospect and the No. 17 dual-threat QB in the country, choosing the Cardinals over offers from Nebraska, Mississippi State and Florida.

Jackson is the Heisman front-runner and has Louisville 4-1 after coming up just a few yards short at No. 5 Clemson last weekend. Through five games this season, Jackson has 2,293 combined passing and rushing yards and 28 touchdowns.
