First team All-America, Heisman Trophy, Walter Camp Award, Maxwell Award, and AP college football player: it’s been a pretty solid week for Lamarvelous.
Swirling through his victory parade after winning the Heisman Trophy, University of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson visited Dan Patrick, one of the best interviewers in sports. Great stuff considering that Lamar is one of the most shy superstars in college sports. Patrick did a masterful job of pulling info from this humble student athlete.
University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari was also scheduled for the December 12th Dan Patrick Show. The UK coach and UofL quarterback talked about next week’s rivalry basketball game between their schools. Cal tweeted a photo he took with Lamar, then heaped praise on the Louisville star during the radio show.
It’s not likely either school will ever post the photo or the other school star’s video. Like two Baptists pretending not to notice each other in a liquor store, it’s the photo that shall never be mentioned again.
Coach Cal’s praise for Lamar is welcome. It’s attention from “Johnny Football” Manziel that no mom, coach, parole officer, or fan of Louisville wants for Lamar.
Run away, Lamar. Use those magical legs and run far, far away from the Manziel circus. You are destined for sustained greatness.
