Jackson ran through his defining college memories – from throwing an interception on his first play, to winning the Music City Bowl, taking home the Heisman Trophy, beating rival Kentucky, beating Florida State, and “The Leap” in Syracuse.
In three seasons, Jackson had 9,043 passing yards with 69 touchdowns. He also had 4,132 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns on the ground.
In his speech, Jackson noted how many Louisville fans came to see him play against the Bengals in Cincinnati in 2019. He said they made that feel like a homecoming, and he rewarded them with perhaps the best highlight of his NFL career – a 47-yard spinning touchdown.
