From Fox News:
After Clemson was declared the “king of college football” in the 2018 National Champion game, winning by a final score of 44-16 over Alabama, a video of freshman Clemson QB,Trevor Lawrence, resurfaced all over social media.
The video, however, wasn’t a proud or pretentious young man pointing to his own greatness or giftedness. It was a video of Trevor Lawrence speaking about how his faith in Jesus Christ has impacted his life and freed him from the pressure to put his identity in his performance on the field. The video was released at the beginning of Clemson’s season but it’s worth noting the type of mindset this young quarterback carried into the game of his life on January 7th. In the video Lawrence said, “Football’s important to me, obviously, but it’s not my life. It’s not the biggest thing in my life. I would say my faith is. That just comes from knowing who I am outside of that. No matter how big the situation is, it’s not really going to define me. I put my identity in who Christ thinks I am and who I know He says I am….so at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter what people think about me or how good they think I play. That’s definitely been a big thing for me, in my situation, just knowing that and having confidence in that.”
