NEW ORLEANS, LA – Trevor Lawrence’s locker sat just inside the door of the Clemson locker room, and he sat in his chair, pads still on, long after many of his teammates had showered and headed to the buses. Offensive coordinator Tony Elliott walked over to Lawrence, sat down beside him and smiled while giving his quarterback words of encouragement.
Lawrence smiled at the impromptu pep talk - there will be better days ahead. In the meantime, Lawrence deals with the sting of his first collegiate loss.
“Yeah, it sucks. I think the worst thing is you don't get to go back and play with this group,” Lawrence said.
