Quarterback Trevor Lawrence is considered one of the best high school prospects due to his historic career and is projected to join the Jacksonville Jaguars as the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. How old is the former Clemson football player, and is he married?
How old is Trevor Lawrence?
Born Oct. 6, 1999, in Knoxville, Tennessee, William Trevor Lawrence is currently 21-years-old. He later relocated to Cartersville, Georgia, where he played the quarterback position at his high school.
The football player started his sophomore, junior, and senior years and led his team to 41 straight wins, two state championships, and four region titles. Lawrence also received several honors, including The Atlanta Journal-Constitution player of the year in 2016 as a junior.
His historic high school career broke Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson’s Georgia state record for the most passing yards and passing touchdowns.
As a five-star recruit, the quarterback is considered one of the best high school prospects of all time.
He is expected to go first overall in the 2021 NFL draft
In Dec. 2016, Lawrence committed to play football at Clemson University, as Watson did. He initially backed up Kelly Bryant but eventually took the starter role over after four games. The true freshman led his team to a perfect season.
He then defeated the usually dominant Alabama in the National Championship Game, which went down as the team’s worst loss in coach Nick Saban’s era. Lawrence’s performance earned him MVP honors, the first true freshman quarterback to receive the honor since Oklahoma’s Jamelle Holieway in 1985, and ACC Rookie of the Year.
During his sophomore year, he led his team to another undefeated regular season but lost the National Championship against LSU, handing him his first loss. Lawrence returned for his junior year and started off well but missed two games following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
The team lost to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff semi-final, and the quarterback finished as a runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Lawrence then opted out of his senior year and declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, where he’s expected to go first overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Is Lawrence married?
Following his Pro Day, he chose not to go to Indianapolis with the other draft prospects for medical exams. Instead, the quarterback planned to marry former Anderson University soccer player Marissa Mowry.
The couple tied the knot on Apr. 10, 2021, during a private ceremony at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina, the same venue where Justin Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin married in Sept. 2019.
Mowry has shared several pictures and videos of the event that included many of his former teammates. Jaguar fans also celebrated with the couple, raising thousands of dollars to give the newlyweds a luxury toaster for a wedding gift.
Additionally, the community gifted them money to donate to charities of their choice. Lawrence later thanked the fans in an Apr. 18 tweet and announced a $20,000 donation to the city from him and his wife.
