Lamar Jackson may have wanted to play in Sunday’s Super Bowl, but on Saturday night he was celebrating yet another major accomplishment in his career.
The former Boynton Beach High School star, and one time Heisman Trophy winner, was awarded the AP Most Valuable Player Award at NFL Honors 2020.
“I’ve been watching him since high school," former star wide receiver Chad Johnson said, "I watched him at Boynton beach high, what we are seeing now I saw him long before the fame and the money so it’s been enjoyable.”
Jackson led the NFL with 36 passing touchdowns and seven touchdown runs. He threw for 3,127 yards and a 113.3 passer rating.
Jackson and the Ravens fell just short of making the AFC championship, losing to the Tennessee Titans. Incidentally, the quarterback of the Titans, and former Miami Dolphins QB, Ryan Tannehill won the NFL comeback player of the year award.
