Matt DeBary spoke with Cartersville QB Trevor Lawrence afer thier win over local rival Cass.
Matt DeBary: Trevor, the offense struggled early, but you managed to throw 4 touchdowns in the first half and win convincingly. Talk about the game tonight a little bit.
Trevor Lawrence: “I just don’t think we were mentally focused tonight. We were ready for the game, but we just didn’t come out focused. Those penalties were bad. I had one pick; I had a brain fart and forgot which side the play was on, so that was on me. We picked it up and played good at the end.
Matt DeBary: What is one thing you can work on as the season progresses?
Trevor Lawrence: “Just focusing more and watching more film on the opponent. They (Cass) played a different defense than we thought they were going to play so that always helps.
Matt DeBary: Where did you visit this summer?
Trevor Lawrence: “I went to Clemson, Tennessee, Georgia, and Duke this summer. I liked all of them a lot. They are all great schools obviously and they have all offered me so that has been a great experience. It’s going crazy right now so I don’t know what my top schools are right now.”
Matt DeBary: Has your phone been blowing up with coaches calling recently?
Trevor Lawrence: “Not too bad. My last offer was from Michigan and that was a couple weeks ago. I’ve contacted with Clemson and a couple schools that have offered me just too stay in touch.
Matt DeBary: How are you dealing with being a big prospect? Are you enjoying the process so far?
Trevor Lawrence: “I’m definitely enjoying it. I’m lucky so I’m not going to say it’s annoying, but it does get a little hectic. You just have to stay focused and that’s what I’m trying to do right now.”
Matt DeBary: Do you have any visits set up for the fall?
Trevor Lawrence: “Yes sir I’m trying to go to about four or five games. I’ll be going to Georgia for sure, Tennessee, Clemson, maybe an Alabama game.
Matt DeBary: Do you keep up with recruiting and what quarterbacks other schools are taking?
Trevor Lawrence: “Yes sir. I’ll notice when someone big commits somewhere but I don’t follow it too closely. It’s everywhere when someone commits.”
Matt DeBary: Is playing time a big factor for you?
Trevor Lawrence: “It is. I’m fine with redshirting but I want to play two years at least.”
