Three years ago, Florida native Lamar Jackson received the Lou Groza Player of the Year award, given annually to the top player in Palm Beach County. Jordan Travis can only hope that life after winning the same award goes as well for him as it went for Jackson.

Travis, a four-star Louisville commit, picked up the award after putting up huge numbers in his senior season. The dual threat QB threw for 2,190 yards and 24 touchdowns, while also rushing for 905 yards and 16 scores.
“It’s a great feeling,” Travis said. “Watching all the guys who had won it on the screen in the past, it’s truly a blessing and I’m very thankful. My coaches and my family supported me through it all and it helped a lot.”
The only thing Travis didn’t get that Jackson did back in 2014? A picture with Art Carmody.
If Jordan doesn’t win a Heisman during his time at Louisville, we’ll all know who to blame.
