Trevor Lawrence, the Clemson standout who is the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy, tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Brett McMurphy.
Dabo Swinney released this statement:
“Trevor has authorized us this evening to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation,” coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement. “He is doing well with mild symptoms but will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College. 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.”
Lawrence is by far the leader for the Heisman Trophy, he currently has 1,833 passing yards, 17 touchdown passes, two interceptions and eight sacks. Clemson is 6-0 this season.
