(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Clemson’s star quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, has become – arguably – the biggest star in college football following the Tigers’ national title win over Alabama.If Lawrence isn’t there yet, he’ll get there soon. The former five-star recruit is already being projected as a future No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. ESPN’s Mel Kiper says Lawrence would go No. 1 in this year‘s draft if he was eligible.Lawrence doesn’t appear to be letting the fame get to his head, though.Clemson’s star quarterback is getting some high praise for what he did in the tunnel after the game on Monday night.Touching postgame moment offers a glimpse of Trevor Lawrence the person.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) January 8, 2019From Yahoo! Sports:As he wound through the tunnel under the stadium, he heard a voice call out to ask him for a picture.Lawrence stopped to oblige the request. The woman then called for her mother to join the picture. She was about 20 yards away and headed in the opposite direction, moving with the help of a walker.Lawrence patiently waited for the mother to join the shot, and when no one emerged in the empty hallway to take the picture, Lawrence delivered his final completion of the night.He offered to take a selfie and snapped the picture, stretching out both his arms to capture the shot. He stopped for a handful more selfies on the way to the locker room, but the moment with the women summed up the character that Clemson coaches and staff have raved about with Lawrence since he arrived on campus last January.That’s pretty awesome.Lawrence is just 19 years old, but he carries himself – and plays like – a seasoned NFL veteran.The league is going to have to wait a couple of years to get ahold of him, though. Lawrence won’t be eligible for the NFL Draft until 2021.last_img
