Trevor Lawrence is 37-0 as a starter in high school, college and the NFL on Saturdays

JACKSONVILLE, FL.Trevor Lawrence never lost a game on a Saturday in high school, college or the NFL.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Sure, the NFL mostly doesn’t play their games on a Saturday, but it’s still impressive. In Lawrence’s career at those three levels, he is 37-0 overall. Yes, 37 wins, no losses, including back-to-back prime-time wins over the Titans and Chargers the last two Saturday nights.

“That guy. (Knocks on wood) No, la la, next question,” Doug Pederson said with a laugh when asked about Lawrence’s streak.

Let’s take a look at these numbers.

Lawrence was 34-2 as a starter with Clemson. Heading into Saturday’s games with the Tigers, he went 10-0 as a true freshman in 2018, 13-0 in 2019 and 9-0 in 2020. Lawrence missed two games in 2020 due to COVID. That’s 32 games on Saturday, another win on Thursday and a national championship win on Monday.

At Cartersville High School, Lawrence won back-to-back games his sophomore, junior and senior seasons Saturday, including a 52-45 shutout over Bartram Trail in 2017. There were several reports listing Lawrence’s 41-0 record Saturday, but that’s not quite accurate.

Granted, Lawrence’s Clemson teams were 38-2 in the games he played in during his career. But he did not start his first four games as a true freshman (Kelly Bryant was the starter). Lawrence got reps here and there for the Tigers backing up Bryant.

Then came the change, the Week 4 game against Georgia Tech. Bryant was sluggish. Lawrence came in and threw four touchdown passes. He started the week after that against Syracuse and every game for the rest of his career.

That’s 32 wins Saturday in college.

Three high school wins on Saturday.

And two very, very big ones in the NFL on Saturday.

Lawrence said he probably lost a game Saturday at some point in his career.

“I guess high school football. We must have played in the championship [on a Saturday]” Lawrence said. “I think we won it. I don’t remember. I’m sure I lost at some point on Saturday.”

Add that to a 2-0 mark (in prime time, back-to-back games) and Lawrence will be untouched heading into Saturday’s games. Will that perfect streak continue against the Chiefs, who have a streak of their own? Kansas City has made it four straight AFC title games.
