Amazing Photos Capture Louisville’s Lamar Jackson Completely Hurdling Defender

2,707

Few players in college football are playing at as high a level as Lamar Jackson, and we mean that very literally.

The Louisville quarterback tallied an incredible eight total touchdowns in the Cardinals’ season opener last weekend, and he picked up right where he left off Friday night against Syracuse, accounting for four touchdowns (one passing, three rushing) in the first quarter at the Carrier Dome.

But it was Jackson’s TD in the second quarter that had everyone’s jaws on the floor. The sophomore QB scampered to his left and literally hurtled a poor Orange defender en route to a nine-yard touchdown run.

Just how high did Jackson get on his hurdle? A USA TODAY Sports Images photographer revealed as much in a trio of awesome pictures.Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson

Jackson finished with an astounding 610 total yards, the most in a single game in ACC history, and accounted for five touchdowns in Louisville’s 62-28 blowout win.
