Missing football while the sports world is on hold? Baltimore Ravens fans can fill the void by throwing it back to 2014 with Lamar Jackson's amazing high school football highlights!

Playing at Boynton Beach High School in Florida, Jackson's incredible skills were on full display at a young age.

Lamar Jackson High School Highlights

Jackson transferred to Boynton Beach ahead of his junior season, and he put together two outstanding seasons for the Tigers. In 16 games he racked up a combined 2,263 passing yards and 31 touchdowns while adding 1,624 yards and 22 touchdowns on the ground. He averaged 8.5 yards per carry over his high school career.

Jackson played three seasons at Louisville, and he continued to show just how dangerous he was with the ball in his hands. He rushed for 4,132 yards (6.3 per carry) and 50 touchdowns, while also throwing for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns for the Cardinals. Jackson even won the 2016 Heisman Trophy with the Cardinals.

Despite that elite production, he still slipped to the bottom of the first round in the 2018 NFL Draft, where he was selected at No. 32 overall by the Baltimore Ravens.

Jackson was mostly used as a gadget player behind Joe Flacco early in his rookie season, but he eventually took over the reins and even made a playoff start. His real breakout didn't come until 2019, though, when he really showed his passing ability with 3,127 yards and a league-leading 36 touchdowns, while also adding 1,206 yards and 7 touchdowns rushing. Already with an MVP award under his belt, Ravens fans have to be pretty excited about having Jackson at the helm for the foreseeable future.
