Trevor Lawrence Reveals What He Keeps Reminding Himself

The transition to the NFL hasn't been easy for Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence. He's thrown five interceptions and is 0-2 as a starter so far in his rookie season.

But Lawrence is keeping his head held high amid his early struggles. Speaking to the Jaguars official website, Lawrence said that he keeps reminding himself that it's "still a game" and one that he's good at.

“The thing I have to keep reminding myself is that it’s still a game, the same game I’ve been playing since I was a kid — a game I happen to be good at,” Lawrence said.

“I know it’s frustrating for people out there and it’s frustrating for us too. We want to win. We’re in here every day working our tail off to get better, we want to win. But I can feel it’s getting better, and the morale is really good. We’ve got a great culture and a good environment here and it’s going to take a little time but we’re getting there.”

Trevor Lawrence was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but had been viewed as the consensus top pick since his breakout freshman season at Clemson in 2018.

When he fell to the Jacksonville Jaguars, everything seemed to fall into place for the struggling franchise.

Two weeks into his NFL career, it's been a mixed bag though. The offense and defense both rank in the bottom quarter of the league. And it's very likely that things will get harder before they get easier.

The Jaguars play the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday.
