At times it might seem like there is too much pressure upon the shoulders of Trevor Lawrence, but it's becoming pretty clear that no moment is too big for the freshman quarterback.

While Lawrence still has much to accomplish before reaching the rockstar status that Deshaun Watson had at Clemson, the young gunslinger continues to stay in touch with the Houston Texans quarterback. The Tigers are just two victories away from another national championship, and it appears Lawrence is receiving strong advice along the way.

Even though Watson has to eventually prepare for his first trip to the NFL Playoffs, the superstar quarterback continues to support his alma mater.

From The State:

“Me and Deshaun talk a little bit. We talked a while ago, and then most recently we talked a little bit before the South Carolina game,” Lawrence said. “We talked a little bit and that was good to hear from him, just encourage me a little bit.”

“Just before the South Carolina game, (he said) this moment’s not bigger than me as far as, ‘Just play your game and you’ll be fine, ”’ Lawrence recalled. “Obviously it’s a rivalry. He was passionate about that game so he just felt the need to reach out and encourage me before it.”

Clemson made the bold decision to keep Lawrence as the starting quarterback over Kelly Bryant, who also stays in touch with his former teammate. The Tigers went undefeated on the regular season, which on that standard alone should validate Dabo Swinney's decision.

Lawrence has been spectacular throughout the year, throwing for 2,606 yards and 24 touchdowns.

With the Cotton Bowl just eight days away, Lawrence will have his chance to become an icon for the Clemson Tigers in just his first year on campus.
