Trevor Lawrence’s family tries to keep a low profile, despite the Clemson quarterback emerging as one of the stars of college football. Trevor grew up in Cartersville, Georgia, which is 45 minutes north of Atlanta. Trevor’s dad, Jeremy, manages a steel company while his mother, Amanda, is a nurse practitioner per Sports Illustrated.
Trevor is a celebrity in the small town as Sports Illustrated detailed. Coming out of Cartersville High School, Lawrence was the No. 1 quarterback in the country for the class of 2018.
The path Trevor took to becoming the No. 1-ranked quarterback in this year’s freshman class runs through, of all places, Chick-fil-A, where he would watch game film over breakfast in a corner booth, trying his best to dodge locals. Trevor Mania got so intense here that, after one practice, Lawrence arrived to his vehicle to find two men waiting for a photo and autograph. They had driven down from Ohio.
