Louisville QB Lamar Jackson leaps over defender for 5th touchdown of the half

Louisville’s quarterback, Lamar Jackson, is red hot. In the FIRST QUARTER alone vs. Syracuse on Friday, Jackson threw a 72-yard touchdown pass, then ran for three more scores. In the second quarter, he only had one TD — and he hurdled a defender for it.

Syracuse fired back with two touchdowns to close the half after this play, but, I mean, this play cannot be ignored. Lamar Jackson is a 6-foot-3 sophomore quarterback.
