Swinney was nervous about Trevor Lawrence throwing at camp, hurting kids


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney held his weekly press conference Tuesday and was asked about his first time watching Trevor Lawrence throw in person.

Swinney was actually a little scared watching him.

"First time I saw him throw live was he came to camp (Dabo Swinney Football Camp) going into his junior year," Swinney remembered. "Wow. I was trying to rearrange the line (receivers). I was afraid that somebody was going to get hurt, we don't wear helmets. Some of those kids jumping up there to catch with Trevor...No...No..No...you go here."

It appears Swinney saved a ton of potential jammed and sprained fingers pushing some of those younger and less talented kids out of the way of Lawrence's rockets.

For the season, Lawrence has 16 passing touchdowns and only two interceptions.
