Trevor Lawrence faced a little backlash over his mustache during a Zoom interview.
The Clemson quarterback was in the middle of a sentence when a reporter is heard saying, “Poor Trevor needs to shave his stache.” Someone else tells the person to please go on mute, while Lawrence just looks around amused.
He eventually ends up just giving a sarcastic “thank you.”
It’s likely the reporter will be extra familiar with that mute button in the future.
Playing at Clemson
While some are concerned with his mustache game, Trevor Lawrence is more focused on his path to the NFL. Currently, Lawrence is expected to be the future No.1 NFL draft pick.
Many people are asking the question: Why is he still playing college ball when he likely could have been in the NFL already? As a freshman, his outstanding performance immediately got him recognized and now as a junior, it seems like there’s little to improve on.
Despite a season of a lot of difficulties, Lawrence is still making up his mind regarding NFL life. This may be because as the No.1 draft pick, he’d likely end up at the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“I learned a lot about myself, and who I want to be, and became a better person through this whole process. But I want that to end in a good way football-wise and be able to play for a championship. That’s been the goal all along,” Lawrence said, according to ESPN.
Trevor Lawrence as an Activist
In October, Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19. He then isolated for the 10 required days. By doing so, he missed a key game against Notre Dame.
“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 BC team on Saturday. Go Tigers,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said, according to USA Today.
In August, Lawrence was also one of the players actively behind the “We Want To Play” messages spread on social media.
“People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play. Players will all be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract covid19,” Lawrence said in a tweet.
Lawrence, for his fame in college football, is often putting forward his thoughts on more than just football. During a rally for Black Lives Matter on his campus, the player said he was listening.
“It’s uncomfortable to set aside everything I know about America and listen to someone else’s perspective. However, it’s necessary. Recently I’ve realized that the America I experience is different from the America that my brothers and sisters experience,” Lawrence said, according to ESPN.
