In every person’s life, everyone has a certain pattern to aspire and pursue. That role model is an idol. Each generation has its own idol models, which are the motivation to strive and perfect.
The idol must be someone talented, an outstanding person, with a great cultural background and a deep knowledge base. It is a person who has reached a certain level for many to be expected and follow. Someone wants to be an idol, they have to be qualified and trained. But the most important thing is to have morality, good character, living standards, having integrity, high self-esteem, and good attitude to the community. So, to judge someone as an idol in society is not easy.
Have you found an idol for yourself, Lamar Jackson is my idol
Lamar Demeatrice Jackson Jr. (born January 7, 1997) is an American football quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Louisville where he won the Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, Walter Camp Award, and was unanimously selected as an All-American as a sophomore in 2016.
Jackson was selected with the 32nd overall pick by the Ravens in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He began his rookie season as a backup, but became the team’s starting quarterback following an injury to starter Joe Flacco. During the season, Jackson helped the team clinch the AFC North division title and became the youngest quarterback to start a playoff game. In 2019, he set an NFL record for the most rushing yards in a season by a quarterback.
Jackson was born to Felicia Jones and Lamar Jackson, Sr., on January 7, 1997 and grew up in the center of an economically distressed section of Pompano Beach, Florida. Lamar Sr. died in a car accident on the same day Lamar’s grandmother died in 2005 when Jackson was eight and he and his siblings were thereafter raised by their mother. He attended public schools and played Pop Warner football in the same Florida league with Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown, though they were on different teams, with Jackson playing for the Pompano Beach Cowboys. Jackson’s cousin Oakland Raiders cornerback Trayvon Mullen and Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley also competed against Jackson in that league. Growing up, his favorite player was Michael Vick. At age 8, Jackson could throw a football 20 yards according to his first quarterback coach, Van “Peanut” Wilson and while he was in high school a homemade video shows him throwing a football 100 yards.
Jackson first attended Santaluces Community High School where he played football sporadically and sat out his sophomore year. He then transferred to Boynton Beach High School in Boynton Beach, Florida.
At Boynton Beach, Jackson played two seasons of varsity football. Boynton Beach coach Rick Swain remembered Jackson as a hard worker who continually improved his passing accuracy and decision-making and who watched hours of film each week. In his two years (16 games) at Boynton Beach, Jackson threw for 2,263 yards and 31 touchdowns, ran for 1,624 yards and 22 touchdowns, and a high school career accumulated quarterback rating of 102.7. Jackson’s last high school game came against a nationally ranked Miami Central High School team during the first round of the 2014 Florida High School Football Playoff 6A tournament. Boynton Beach was soundly defeated 49-6, with Jackson throwing two interceptions. He also competed for his high school track team, posting a personal record of 11.45 seconds in the 100 meter dash. He was rated by Rivals.com as a four-star recruit and had dozens of offers from big college football programs but he committed to the University of Louisville after head coach Bobby Petrino gave his word to Felicia Jones that her son would be playing quarterback and nothing else.
