College football’s biggest star has tested positive for COVID-19.
The news that makes you say “WOW” was reported by Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Clemson will host Boston College on Saturday, a warm-up for next weekend’s highly-anticipated matchup with fourth-ranked Notre Dame in South Bend.
There were many “what if” hypothetical scenarios we played out as college football fans in the preseason. One of those was, “What if Trevor Lawrence gets COVID-19 right before the College Football Playoff?” Half of that hypothetical has come true. At least now he’ll be immune from contracting the virus before the Playoff?
It will take some time for all of us to wrap our heads around this enormous bit of news. In the meantime, Godspeed to Lawrence on a speedy recovery.
