Lawrence takes lead in POY race
According to Georgia High School Football Daily’s tracking of candidates for the Touchdown Club of Atlanta’s Player of the Year, Cartersville High School junior quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, is the new leader.
Quarterback Jake Fromm of Houston County or defensive lineman, Aubrey Solomon, of Lee County has led GHSF Daily’s Player of the Year watch each week this season, until now.
With Houston County and Lee County both losing last week, those two candidates face longer odds.
From GHSF Daily: Lawrence is having an outstanding season, but not necessarily a monster year. He’s just the safest projection at this point. Lawrence is a big-name player on a team with an excellent shot to win a state championship.
Lawrence was 18-of-30 passing for 274 yards and three touchdowns in a 35-21 victory over Sandy Creek. For the season, Lawrence is 139-of-222 (62.6 percent) for 2,174 yards and 27 touchdowns with seven interceptions. Cartersville is 8-0 and ranked No. 1 in Class AAAA. Lawrence is the consensus No. 1 junior recruit in the nation.
