We’ve come to expect greatness from Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence throughout his career. He displayed such greatness against Georgia Tech in the first half of Saturday’s game.
Lawrence was on fire in the first two quarters today, throwing for 391 yards and five touchdowns. He missed on just five throws, completing 22 of 27 passes. The Tigers have a 52-7 lead over the Yellow Jackets at the half.
The Clemson quarterback has nothing left to prove to NFL scouts. Most, if not all, NFL analysts already project Lawrence the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. It’s easy to see why on Saturday.
Lawrence’s only mistake of the first half of Saturday’s game came on an ugly interception. Georgia Tech got immediate pressure on Lawrence, who then proceeded throw off his back foot and sail a ball right to a Yellow Jackets defender. Other than the pick, the Clemson quarterback has been flawless.
Trevor Lawrence's first half stats are unreal:
391 passing yards
Clemson up 52-7 on Georgia Tech
