Lamar Jackson turned in another stellar performance for Louisville in the spring football game, accounting for four touchdowns

Lamar Jackson turned in another stellar performance for Louisville in the spring football game, accounting for four touchdowns. The Red team beat the White team 52-7 on Saturday.

It wasn't the video-game like numbers he put up in last year's spring football game, but University of Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson was still the star of the show on Saturday.

Before a crowd of 14,000 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, Jackson accounted for five touchdowns in leading the Red team to a 52-7 win over the White team in the '17 Spring Game.

"I don't even remember what happened last year," Jackson said with a smile. "I'm just trying to get better and improve. I am trying to keep last year, last year and just focus on this year and getting better.

"We got out there in front of the fans and showed them a good time and I felt good all day long."

Jackson completed 19 of 32 passes for 346 yards and three TDs, while rushing four times for 38 yards and one more score. U of L coach Bobby Petrino said he was "very excited" about the improvement he's shown.

In the spring game a year ago where the team played 1s vs. 2s, Jackson threw for 519 yards and eight touchdowns in a blowout win.

But even with the solid numbers, Jackson said he's not satisfied.

"He felt like I hold the ball too long sometimes and timing with the routes," Jackson said. "It was a lot of that throughout the game. I just need to keep working to get better."
