Lamar Jackson whose real name is Lamar Demeatrice Jackson Jr. is an American football quarterback with the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. He was dating Jamie Taylor some years ago but as he lives quite a secretive life it’s very difficult to know about his personal relationships.
As many are curious to know about his girlfriend at the present, let’s discuss his current relationship but first let’s know more about Lamar Jackson.
Who is Lamar Jackson?
Lamar Jackson was born on 7th January 1997 in Pompano Beach, Florida. He earned the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp Award after his second year of collegiate football at Louisville. He was unanimously picked as an All-American and was selected by the Ravens as the final first-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he became the Raven’s quarterback after an injury to incumbent Joe Flanco and clinched a division title with the team. So, he became the youngest NFL quarterback to start a playoff game at age 21 and guided23 the team to the AFC North title.
Jackson set the second record for quarterback rushing yards in his first full season as a starter next year, and led the league in touchdown passes en route clinching the top speed of the AFC. He also became the second unanimous NFL Most Valuable Player winner in league history with 36 touchdown passes and the fourth African-American quarterback to win the award. Following his MVP campaign, he also became the first quarterback in NFL to have multiple 1,000 yards rushing seasons while leading the Ravens to a third consecutive playoff run.
He is well educated as he completed his education at the Boynton Beach High School in Boynton Beach, Florida. It is also revealed that he had gone to public schools and played Pop Warner football in the same Florida league with future teammates. Surprisingly, he could throw a football 20 yards when he was just 8 years old and when he reached high school he could throw football 100 yards.
Does he have a girlfriend?
Finding an eligible man is quite difficult in the present. However, despite being an eligible tall, dark, athletic, attractive, and handsome man, he is not looking for anyone.
Some years ago news about him linking up with Jamie Taylor had made headlines and they were in a relationship for a very long time. But some might even question if she is his girlfriend as he is so private and there are very few photos of them and they are rarely spotted in the public.
But even so, Jamie Taylor is a genuine person and has met Jackson during his last days at Louisville and has been dating for four years. Right before the start of Jackson’s NFL season she gave insight about her relationships and spoke on the record with the Ravens team website in 2019.
It is revealed that they had been in a relationship since they were in college and have been together for a long time. But, the couple has kept their relationships under the wraps from media and the Internet. Like Jackson, she is also very secretive about her personal life and avoids spotlight and attention from the media. So, not much is known about her.
Taylor stated that she felt hurt whenever she reads criticism about her boyfriend even though she understands how to deal with it when it comes her way. She often doesn’t respond to criticism and Jackson also tells her not to take it personally.
As they live quite a quiet lifestyle and if we go through his Instagram profile we can’t find a single photo of them so it’s very difficult to assume if they are still together or not. So, we can say that his current relationship at the present is unknown and he may be single as he has kept the relationship status on his social media as single.
Fastest Quarterback to 3,000
In the first quarter of the Sunday evening against Kansas City, he became the quickest quarterback in NFL history to reach 3,000 running yards.
