Canes' Lawrence named 2016 AJC all-classification Player of the Year, King is Coach of the Year

Cartersville High School quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, has been named the 2016 Atlanta Journal-Constitution's All Classification Player of the Year.

His head coach, Joey King, was also named Class AAAA Coach of the Year.

Lawrence, who committed to Clemson University a few days after helping lead the Hurricanes to their second straight state title, was 250-of-406 passing for 3,904 yards and 51 touchdowns with nine interceptions this season.

He needs 2,477 yards and 40 touchdown passes as a senior to break the Georgia career records of 13,077 and 159 held by former Gainesville quarterback Deshaun Watson.

A starter since early in his freshman season, Cartersville teams are 42-2 during that stretch and currently riding a 30-game win streak. Head coach Joey King arrived at Cartersville that same season and has guided the Hurricanes through each of the three record-breaking seasons.
