UofL FOOTBALL | Jackson Continues to Improve Leadership Skills

08/29/2017 01:44 PM

Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson had a very memorable 2016 season.

Not only did he set numerous on-the-field records, he also became UofL’s first-ever Heisman Trophy winner.

During camp, Jackson talked about which areas he has improved on the field, one of which he says was his speed.

Well, according to head coach Bobby Petrino, Jackson has also improved his leadership skills:

The #16 Louisville Cardinals will open up their season against the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday night. Kickoff is set for 7:30 ET at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
