We've been talking a lot lately about Louisville quarterback and Heisman frontrunner Lamar Jackson, and for good reason. He's provided a season's worth of highlights in just two games, and he currently has his Cardinals squad (in awesome all-red chrome helmets) putting a beatdown on Florida State. But it's his high school highlights that keep blowing our minds.
Not only was Jackson using his athleticism to make defenders look foolish, he was also showing off his cannon of an arm with a 100-yard pass. Yes, that's the length of a football field, and yes, that's totally insane. In case you're feeling skeptical, there's video to prove it.
Lamar Jackson said he threw the football 100 yards in high school. Here's the video, goal line to goal line pic.twitter.com/q7HsxE9bo6

The footage is fairly grainy, but if you look closely, you can see Jackson standing at the goal line of one end zone and launching the football all the way to a teammate who's standing at the goal line of the opposite end zone.
So there's Jackson, clearly standing well behind the 20-yard line.
And there are Jackson's teammates, catching the ball in the other end zone, 100 yards away. There's literally nothing Jackson can't do, and that includes firing a football farther than any human should ever be able to.
