Alabama football star Mac Jones is adding to his trophy case.

After helping lead the Crimson Tide to a national championship win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, Jones has claimed the 2020 Manning Award.

The Manning Award is presented by the Allstate Sugar Bowl to honor the top quarterback in the nation.

“It was quite a year for Mac Jones and the Alabama football team,” said Archie Manning in a release. “We had a lot of outstanding quarterbacks around the country, but I don’t think any player directed his offense as efficiently and as effectively as Mac.

“The Crimson Tide’s performance all year was so impressive; seeing them roll to wins in the Rose Bowl and the CFP Championship really showed what an amazing team they have put together. And a lot of credit for that goes to Mac, who bided his time before taking over and showing the country what he could do.”

This season, Jones threw for 4,500 passing yards, 41 touchdowns, and four interceptions.

Jones led the nation in passing yards, completion percentage, passer rating (203.06), and yards per attempt (11.2).

Following the conclusion of the Crimson Tide’s 13-0 campaign, Jones, who was a consensus All-American, officially announced he would be declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft.
