Clemson's Trevor Lawrence is one of 22 players named to the 2020 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team which recognizes student-athletes for their community service efforts. Lawrence has been heavily involved in service work in both the Clemson community and his hometown.

The junior quarterback has been very active in the Clemson's community outreach efforts but there have been other projects that he has spearheaded. This past spring, he and his now-fiancée launched a relief fundraiser to provide direct assistance to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in both Upstate South Carolina and in his hometown of Cartersville, Ga. 

In June, Lawrence joined teammates Mike Jones Jr., Cornell Powell and Darien Rencher as they helped lead the Clemson Community Peaceful Demonstration to raise awareness for social justice.

Lawrence is the seventh member of the Clemson program all-time to earn an AFCA Good Works Team distinction, joining Robert Carswell (1999), Nick Eason (2000), Xavier Dye (2009), Deshaun Watson (2016), Sean Pollard (2018) and head coach Dabo Swinney (2019). This marks Clemson's third straight year with an AFCA Good Works team selection.
