Clemson-bound quarterback Trevor Lawrence passes Deshaun Watson for Georgia’s all-time passing yards mark

A former Clemson quarterback made way for a future Clemson quarterback in the history books on Friday night.

Cartersville (Ga.) senior Trevor Lawrence, the No. 2 player in the country according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, is now the all-time leading passer in Georgia high school football history. He passed former Tigers great Deshaun Watson, who departed Gainesville High School after the 2013 season with 13,077 passing yards.

Lawrence still has about several games left in the season to pad his new record. After this evening’s game against Chapel Hill, the Hurricanes visit Troup County. They will then shift their focus to the playoffs, as they look to make it three straight Class 4A state championships.
