Trevor Lawrence, Clemson QB On Why His Identity Is In Christ, Not Football

After a dazzling win against Notre Dame at Saturday's 2018 Cotton Bowl, Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence gave an equally amazing post-game speech to the press, boldly declaring his identity in Jesus Christ.

For his part, Lawrence threw three touchdowns and a total of 327 yards to lead the Tigers to their 30-3 victory against the Fighting Irish.

“Football is important to me, but it’s not the biggest thing in my life, my faith is," Lawrence said. “I just know that no matter how big the situation is, it’s not going to define me."

In spite of any fame his talent on the field may garner, Lawrence says his focus is always on his “identity in what Christ says” and “who He thinks I am and who I know that He says I am.”

Lawrence, just 19 years old, has been called a “once in a generation” player by his coach, Dabo Swinney, according to The State. “He’s just so poised. He just sees it. And he’s got a gift of an arm. But I just love his humility and how consistent he is with his preparation, day in and day out. Easy, easy guy to coach. Easy guy to get behind and support. His teammates love him.”
