Trevor Lawrence on sitting out bowl games: 'That'll never be me'
Sitting out of bowl games has become common in college football. Everyone from quarterbacks to defensive linemen, wide receivers to defensive backs have skipped a postseason appearance to help secure their draft stock.
That won’t be Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, though.
Lawrence was recently interviewed by ESPN and the topic of sitting out a game, a season or a bowl game popped up during the conversation. The national championship-winning quarterback says he doesn’t have plans to sit out, even if Clemson plays in a regular bowl game without national championship implications.
“Sitting out bowl games and stuff, that’ll never be me,” Lawrence told ESPN. “You won’t have to worry about writing those stories.”
Lawrence still has a lot of time before that is a concern. The former five-star quarterback still has two years to play before he’ll be eligible for the NFL Draft. Considering he led Clemson to a title as a true freshman, he may not have to worry about the Tigers missing the College Football Playoff anyway.
But Lawrence made it clear that he isn’t worried about the NFL just yet. He wants to be one of the best to ever play the position.
“I want to be the best to ever play quarterback,” Lawrence said.
He’s off to a great start early in his career.
