Henry Griffee, Writer

It was sure an exciting and fun year of watching football because of the fabulous MVP Lamar Jackson, the starting quarterback for the  Baltimore Ravens. He lit up the field with his amazing running abilities. Though it may have not been much fun, as the defense was trying to stop him. Most of the time they couldn’t and this caused many blowouts wins.
