Lamar Jackson, quarterback for the University of Louisville and Heisman Trophy winner, doesn’t seem too worried about a coach who just talked trash about him.
Sports Illustrated gave colleges coaches the chance to speak about other players anonymously in an article printed in the magazine.
Jackson claims he knows it was the coach at Wake Forest, Dave Clawson. The unnamed coach said in the article that Jackson had zero chance of making it to the NFL and added that he would be exposed.
The coach said, “Jackson has no shot at playing quarterback in the NFL. None. He can’t make the throws and can’t read coverages. He’s not going to have a chance,” when speaking to Sports Illustrated.
Louisville and Wake Forest have been rivals for a long time, but when they played each other this past season Louisville won by 32 points. “We won [44-12], so I don’t really care,” Jackson said, according to the New York Post.
We will have to wait and see what happens, but for now Louisville and Wake Forest’s next meeting will be on October 28. It should be a fun game to watch.
