Following his impressive performance against Alabama in the National Championship, Clemson football QB Trevor Lawrence is the early favorite to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy.
Clemson football quarterback Trevor Lawrence has become a household name.
The talented quarterback took over the starting position four games into the season and continued to improve as the year progressed.
That all culminated up to his final game of his freshman season when Lawrence led the Tigers to a 44-16 victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship game, earning the Offensive MVP Award.
The national media has fallen in love with Lawrence because of his calm demeanor, hyper-talented arm and blonde, flowy hair.
As a result, Trevor Lawrence is now the favorite to win the 2019 Heisman Trophy according to the latest released Vegas Odds.
Way-too-Early 2019 Heisman Trophy Odds…
Trevor Lawrence is at +300 odds to win the Heisman Trophy. He is ahead of Tua Tagovailoa (+350), Jake Fromm (+850), Jonathan Taylor (+900), teammate Travis Etienne (+950) and Georgia’s D’Andre Swift (+950).
There are several players across the nation with +1000 odds or greater to win the Heisman, including former Clemson football quarterback Kelly Bryant (+4000).
Lawrence has all the attributes to become a Heisman winner before his career with Clemson football comes to an end. Should he win the Heisman, he’d be the first Tiger in school history to bring home the prestigious award.
The closest anyone has come was Deshaun Watson, who finished as a finalist in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
People are already in love with Trevor Lawrence. That’s part of the battle. When voters are being told by the national media that Lawrence is the best freshman of all time and that he could be drafted No. 1 overall this year, which I believe to be true, it bode wells for him garnering votes.
It will be interesting to see how the odds change as we get closer to the season and what Lawrence is capable of doing in 2019 as the leader of what is set to be a prolific Tiger offense.
