Clemson recruiting: Trevor Lawrence named finalist for Gatorade National Player of the Year award

The honors keep rolling in for Clemson quarterback commit Trevor Lawrence.

A few weeks after he was named one of six finalists for the U.S. Army Player of the Year award, the signal-caller from Cartersville, Georgia has been named a finalist for another national award, the Gatorade National Player of the Year award. This time, he’s in even more exclusive company.

According to a TigerNet.com story, Lawrence is one of three finalists for the award, and the only high school senior in the group. The others are junior running back Quavaris Crouch and quarterback J.T. Daniels.

Lawrence saw his high school career come to an end on Nov. 17, when his team lost in the second round of the Georgia Class AAAA playoffs. On the season, Lawrence completed 177 of 256 passes for 3,296 yards and 41 touchdowns to one interception. He concludes his high school career having broken Deshaun Watson’s Georgia state records for most career passing yards (13,908) and touchdowns (161).

Lawrence is ranked the No. 1 quarterback and No. 1 overall recruit in the 2018 class by Rivals.
