MVP On February 1, 2020, Jackson became just the second player to be unanimously selected as the Associated Press NFL MVP for his historic 2019 season. Any time you are mentioned in the same breath as seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady (who was unanimously selected MVP in 2010), you know you’ve had a historic year. Jackson comfortably broke the single-season rushing record for QBs and became the first player to throw for more than 3,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 yards in a single season. Jackson’s 37–12 record as a starter in the NFL is proof that athletic QBs can win at the highest level. After receiving the prestigious award, Jackson had some advice for the youth who may

have people doubt them, “Don’t worry about what they say. Do you. Stay focused because you want to be great, and you’re going tobe great. Just do you.” Lamar Jackson keeps doing Lamar Jack son and , i n doing so, became the youngest NFL MVP in history.
