Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence Tests Positive for the Coronavirus

Trevor Lawrence, the star quarterback at top-ranked Clemson University and a leading contender for the Heisman Trophy, has tested positive for coronavirus, his coach said Thursday night.

Tigers Coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement that Lawrence was “doing well with mild symptoms” but that he would miss Saturday’s home game against Boston College. Swinney did not say when Lawrence had tested positive — information that could go far to determine whether the quarterback would be eligible to play in Clemson’s game at No. 4 Notre Dame on Nov. 7.

“While we certainly will miss Trevor, this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we’re excited about competing against a very good B.C. team on Saturday,” Swinney said.

Lawrence, a junior from Cartersville, Ga., has been among the most electrifying signal callers in college football in recent years, and he was central to Clemson’s national championship season in 2018. And just a few months ago, he was a leading figure in the #WeWantToPlay movement that urged college sports executives to mount a football season during the pandemic.
