It is crazy to think about it now, but there was a time when some people thought Dabo Swinney was making a mistake when he benched Kelly Bryant for Trevor Lawrence following Clemson’s win at Georgia Tech in 2018.
Lawrence was phenomenal coming off the bench and sparking the Clemson offense the last time the Tigers made the trip to Atlanta, the site of Saturday’s game between No. 1 Clemson and the Yellow Jackets.
“He made one play in particular moving to his left. He threw an absolute rope to Hunter Renfrow. And then what he did the rest of the day was impressive,” Swinney recalled.
