The greatest man on campus has COVID-19.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has examined positive for COVID-19, his coach Dabo Swinney confirmed.
“Trevor has authorized us this evening to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation,” Swinney stated in a press release. “He is doing well with mild symptoms but will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College.”
Lawrence issued his personal assertion on social media, saying “the only thing that hurts is missing an opportunity to be with my teammates this weekend and play the game I love.”
Lawrence is arguably the most important star in school athletics and has led the No. 1-ranked Tigers to an undefeated begin to the season. He can be a Heisman Trophy contender.
Per ACC COVID-19 tips, the star quarterback should now isolate for 10 days earlier than he can play once more, lacking Saturday’s sport.
Back in April Swinney stated this concerning the virus:
“God can stamp this out just as quick as it rose up, and I don’t have any doubt that’s what’s going to happen. That’s my belief. Now, if someone wants to blast me because I believe things are going to turn around, well, then that’s fine. They can blast me for that. That’s OK.
“I believe we are gonna kick this thing in the teeth and nothing is going to change that belief for me.”
And as the school soccer season approached, Swinney went additional, saying his gamers had been safer at college.
“This is the safest environment that we can have our guys,” he advised ESPN. “Without a doubt … as opposed to letting these guys all leave and go home and be in these environments where they’re not getting tested … every single week.”
Lawrence is anticipated to be the highest total decide within the 2021 NFL Draft if he decides to flip professional and can seemingly have the ability to dictate which group he desires to play for subsequent season as knowledgeable.
The Tigers will probably be competing for their second championship in three seasons however they may have to cope with the well being of their quarterback first.
“While we certainly will miss Trevor,” continued Swinney’s assertion, “this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we’re excited about competing against a very good BC team on Saturday. Go Tigers.”
Backup quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei, a five-star recruit and true freshman, is anticipated to begin towards the Boston College.
