Trevor Lawrence shares statement after positive test
The college football community was rocked by Thursday night’s news that Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19. The reports were confirmed in a school-released statement from Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney.
Not long after Swinney’s statement, Lawrence released a statement of his own via his Twitter account:
“I have tested positive for COVID-19, and my symptoms have been relatively mild while I’m following the protocol from Clemson and the ACC. The only thing that hurts is missing the opportunity to be with my teammates this weekend and play the game I love. I hate that I can’t be there, but I’ll be watching from isolation and pulling for our guys while I wait for the opportunity [to] rejoin the team. God bless and Go Tigers!”
Since the initial reports and confirmation, it has been reported that Lawrence’s positive came from a Wednesday test which begins his 10-day isolation period, set by the ACC. Clemson plays Boston College on Saturday. Lawrence’s status for next week against No. 4 Notre Dame is already a major storyline in CFB media.
