Lawrence excited to play close to home


Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is excited to play near his hometown of Cartersville, Ga., this coming Saturday when second-ranked Clemson heads to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech in the ACC opener for both schools.

Lawrence talks about his return close to home and much more.
