16 Days Until the College Football Season Kicks Off
Another 2021 NFL draftee.
Yesterday for day 17, we highlighted a 2021 NFL draftee pass catcher from Tuscaloosa. Now today for day 16, we take a look at a fellow 2021 NFL draft pick but his guy isn’t a pass catcher.
Trevor Lawrence was born in Knoxville, Tennessee and attended Cartersville High School in Cartersville, Georgia where he played football and basketball. He was the number one player and five star recruit and attended Clemson University.
Lawrence started off sharing time with Kelly Bryant as a true freshman but earned the starting role after four games. In that season, he threw for just south of three thousand and three hundred yards and thirty touchdowns.
For his efforts, Lawrence was named Second Team ACC, ACC Freshman of the Year, College Football Playoff Offensive MVP, and won a National Title.
The following year, Lawrence was the clear cut starter and one of the nations best players. He threw for over three thousand and six hundred yards and thirty six touchdowns. He was named First Team ACC.
In 2020, Lawrence passed for thirty one hundred yards and twenty four touchdowns on his way to being named All American, First Team ACC, and ACC Player of the Year. It’s really amazing that Lawrence never won the Heisman.
A Clemson coach stated that Lawrence was “pro ready” the day he stepped on campus as a freshman which is unreal.
Lawrence was selected first overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft and is looking to turn the Jags around with Urban Meyer.
Tomorrow for day 15, we’ll be looking at a player that is regarded as the greatest college quarterback of all time that played in the swamp.
