Former Clemson Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence enjoyed a sensational college football career. He completely dominated in the ACC under head coach Dabo Swinney and put himself in position to become the first-overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Lawrence’s college legacy is well known. So is his relationship with his now-wife Marissa Mowry.

While Mowry has been cheering Lawrence on since the pair met in high school, no one has been a fan of the superstar quarterback longer than his loving parents, Jeremy Lawrence and Amanda Lawrence.
