Trevor Lawrence Post-Game
By Makenna Biehl
The Clemson Tigers took down the Pitt Panthers with a score of 52-17, 31 of those points coming just from the first quarter. The game had extra significance for Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, who hasn’t played in a game for several weeks now due to a positive COVID test, a bye week, and the postponement of the Florida State game. Not only was it special because he got to get back on the field, but it also could have been Lawrence’s last ever game in Death Valley.
Lawrence finished today’s game with a 26-for-37, 403 yards, and two touchdown pass performance. The game marks his 32nd win as the starting quarterback for Clemson, tying the school record set by Tajh Boyd and Deshaun Watson.
Lawrence’s excellent performance resulted in high praises from Clemson Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott. Elliott explained that Lawrence has not only made himself better this year but also managed to help improve the people around him.
A mystery that still remains is whether or not Lawrence will stay another year or declare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Lawrence revealed that the decision will be a big one due to how much love he has for Clemson. However, he did explain that if this was his last home game, then it was a special one. Going into further detail, saying how he paid more attention to the little things about game weekend.
Lawrence and the rest of the Clemson Football team are now celebrating the win before spending the upcoming week preparing to face the Virginia Tech Hokies on December 5th.
