Missing football while the sports world is on hold? Jacksonville Jaguars fans can fill the void by throwing it back to 2014 with Gardner Minshew's awesome high school football highlights.

Playing at Brandon High School in Mississippi, Minshew's potential was on full display.

Gardner Minshew High School Highlights

Minshew racked up a total of 9,705 yards and 88 touchdowns through the air in his high school career, including 3,541 yards with 31 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions in his senior season.

Before transferring to the NCAA, Minshew led Northwest Mississippi Community College to the NJCAA championship in 2015, throwing for 3,228 yards that year. He then played a couple of underwhelming seasons at East Carolina before transferring to Washington State, where he really broke out.

In his 2018 senior season, he completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 4,779 yards and 38 touchdowns. That one-season sample wasn't enough to entice NFL teams, though, and he fell to the sixth round in the 2019 NFL Draft.

It didn't take long for him to get a shot for the Jacksonville Jaguars, though, as Nick Foles dealt with injuries and poor play, letting Minshew get his chance. He ran with it, throwing for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns, ranking 13th among qualifying passers with an average of 7.3 adjusted yards per pass attempt (AY/A). He played well enough that the Jags traded Foles this offseason, and Jacksonville fans have to be excited about their offense's potential with Minshew at the helm.
