After getting barbecued on social media for his inaction in response to the current social climate, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney responded strongly and organized a Black Lives Matter protest, with high-profile Tigers like quarterback Trevor Lawrence taking part. Lawrence was given a chance to offer up his thoughts on the movement, and he did so in a short speech in which he accepted the fact that what he goes through on a day to basis is "different from the America that my brothers and sisters experience."
From the start, Lawrence has been one of the most vocal players in the country when it comes to calling for unity and change, and he continued hammering that message home on Sunday.
Lawrence appears destined for a long, excellent career in pro football, but college is about maturing as a person even more so than as an athlete, and Lawrence proved that he has the tools for success in whatever direction his life takes him, given his leadership abilities.
Lawrence, the most visible and well-known college football player in the country currently, knows that his words can carry a lot of weight. To be as supportive and positive as he has been without being divisive shows that the 20-year-old is just as rare of a person as he is a quarterback.
