Despite Louisville’s struggles as a team, Lamar Jackson is putting together another phenomenal season. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner has already racked up 32 touchdowns and almost 4,000 yards of total offense.
For his efforts, Jackson was named a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award on Tuesday. The honor is given to the nation’s top quarterback.
Here is the full list of 16 semifinalists, in alphabetical order:
J.T. Barrett (Ohio State), Jake Browning (Washington), Kelly Bryant (Clemson), Sam Darnold (USC), Luke Falk (Washington State), Riley Ferguson (Memphis), Nick Fitzgerald (Mississippi State), Will Grier (West Virginia), Kenny Hill (TCU), Jalen Hurts (Alabama), Lamar Jackson (Louisville), Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma), Trace McSorley (Penn State), McKenzie Milton (UCF), Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State) and Khalil Tate (Arizona).
Jackson and Kelly Bryant are the only two ACC quarterbacks on the list. The Cardinals are 5-4 on the season, but that’s been through no fault of Jackson’s. He’s been outstanding.
