Clemson commit highlights: Lawrence answers bulletin-board material
|Sunday, September 3, 2017, 2:24 PM- -|
The nation's top-rated quarterback prospect will have the edge in most any matchup this season for Cartersville (Ga.). A little extra motivation didn't hurt either in another monster week for the five-star 2018 Clemson commit.
Trevor Lawrence led his Hurricanes versus Calhoun (Ga.) Friday, but had his say on the opponent before kickoff.
The Calhoun football Twitter account said they were going to "travel south to take on Trevor Lawrence...I mean Cartersville in non-region action." Lawrence was not amused by the joke:
Wrong move.. https://t.co/Q9Kb2mwIHo— Trevor Lawrence (@Trevorlawrencee) September 1, 2017
He answered the perceived bulletin-board material to the tune of five total first-half scores while putting Cartersville up 51-0. With his job done, he watched the Hurricanes finish off a 58-6 win to improve to 3-0.
The 6-foot-6 QB connected on 13-of-20 passes for 317 yards with four touchdowns, and added another score on the ground.
On the season, Lawrence has thrown for 950 passing yards with a 69.4 completion rate, 10 touchdown passes and one interception.
