louisville, ky.» For some­one who is not com­pletely com­fort­able in the spot­light, La­mar Jack­son has come to em­brace it all.

But af­ter a week of awards shows, in­ter­views and photo op­por­tu­ni­ties, the Louisville sopho­more quar­ter­back is hun­gry to just get back to the place that made him the most dec­o­rated col­lege foot­ball player of the year.

“It feels like I haven’t played foot­ball in a year, I’ve been away so long,” Jack­son said. “I can’t wait to get back out there, put on those pads and grind.”

Jack­son re­turns to Louisville as The As­so­ci­ated Press col­lege foot­ball player of the year, the lat­est ad­di­tion to his haul of post­sea­son awards.

The youngest Heis­man Tro­phy win­ner re­ceived 42 of 61 first-place votes from AP’s panel of me­dia vot­ers. Jack­son re­ceived 153 points over­all, more than twice that of Clem­son quar­ter­back and run­ner-up De­shaun Wat­son (73).
