What Trevor Lawrence did was amazing last year, but he was not the first true freshmen QB to win the Natty, as written by Stephen Means. Lawrence is the first true freshman to win since Jamelle Holieway led the Oklahoma Sooners over the Penn State Lions in the Orange Bowl 33 years ago. During the 1985-1986 season, Holieway took over as starting quarterback after Troy Aikman's leg was broken.
As far as TL and JF, we are splitting hairs over which one is better. I am more excited about having Ryan Day as our coach. I think he is going to the get the most out of whatever QB is on the roster. As long as Day is our Coach, we will be in great shape.
We can let the debate about JF & TL be settled on the field when they meet in the CFP.
