Louisville’s Birdgang Gaining Strength

Louisville, KY — Lamar Jackson personally back-handed Boston College with 7 touchdowns on Saturday and strengthened his case to be leading in the Heisman race.   This is a particularly exciting time to be a Louisville fan because Lamar Jackson is too young to go pro and has to play at least one more season with the Cardinals.  

Lamar Jackson is such a beast he’s personally scored more points in the 2016 season than the entire Lamar University football team combined.  So the incoming class of recruits has a unique opportunity to play with a quarterback with the scoring capability of an entire team.

Two notable members of Birdgang 17 that are going to have the chance of a lifetime to play with Mr. Jackson, are 4-Star wide receivers Justin Marshall and Corey Reed Jr.
