Heisman Fighter: Lamar Jackson vs Deshaun Watson
Our Network A Athletes of the Week are Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson. These two dual threat quarterbacks are going head to head in a gridiron battle between #3 Louisville and #5 Clemson. Not only is this a big conference matchup for these two undefeated teams, it could also become pivotal in deciding the Heisman Trophy race.
Let’s get to know our two Network A athletes a bit more…
Lamar Jackson - Louisville
Get you a man that can do both! Jackson’s entire candidacy can be summed up in a single face: His 25 total touchdowns (13 passing and 12 rushing) would tie Texas Tech, South Florida and Washington for second in the country. Jackson has accounted for as many or more touchdowns than all but one team in the FBS.
Deshaun Watson - Clemson
After a slow start to the season, Deshaun Watson is back in contention after making big plays against Georgia Tech’s defense. It was promising to see the offense firing from all cylinders leading into the game against Louisville. If Watson and company get the W Saturday night, look to see him take a jump up the list, ahead of Lamar Jackson.
