UofL FOOTBALL | Lamar Jackson working to find balance in pass game

08/16/2016 06:45 PM

Lamar Jackson had a fantastic scrimmage over the weekend, but was caught up on the fact that he was sacked twice. His completion percentage was over 80 percent, he threw five touchdowns, and he did not turn the football over, but he could not let go of the fact that he was sacked.

That comes with the territory of trying to be a pass-first quarterback, but now the Louisville coaching staff is working on finding balance with his improved passing abilities, and natural ability to evade tacklers.
