Trevor Lawrence and his dad made some interesting remarks about Lawrence’s philosophy on football that raised some eyebrows among fans.

On Wednesday, Sports Illustrated’s Michael Rosenberg released an interview before the draft about Lawrence’s relationship with football. In the piece Lawrence is adamant that he strives to be the best player he can be but he’s not obsessive about proving people wrong on the field because he feels that’s “unhealthy.”

“I want to do it because I want to be the best I can be. I want to maximize my potential. Who wouldn’t want to? You kind of waste it if you don’t.”
It’s hard to explain that because I want people to know that I’m passionate about what I do and it’s really important to me, but . . . I don’t have this huge chip on my shoulder, that everyone’s out to get me and I’m trying to prove everybody wrong,

“It’s hard to explain that because I want people to know that I’m passionate about what I do and it’s really important to me, but . . . I don’t have this huge chip on my shoulder, that everyone’s out to get me and I’m trying to prove everybody wrong,” he says. “I just don’t have that. I can’t manufacture that. I don’t want to.” Marissa adds, “There’s also more in life than playing football.”

“Yeah,” Trevor says. “And I think people mistake that for being a competitor. . . . I think that’s unhealthy to a certain extent, just always thinking that you’ve got to prove somebody wrong, you’ve got to do more, you’ve got to be better.”

Later in the article, Lawrence’s dad remarked that his son isn’t a “I want to win a Super Bowl at all costs” type of person.

Trevor has always been like this. Everybody in the family says that off the football field, Marissa, who played soccer at Division II Anderson University, is more competitive than he is. His father says, “He’s not award-driven. He’s not, ‘I want to win a Super Bowl at all costs.’ ”

Trevor’s high school coach added that the QB could walk away from football tomorrow and be fine.

There is no doubt about it: With who he is as a person, he could walk away from it tomorrow and be fine.”

Fans had some interesting reactions to the quotes from Lawrence, his dad and his former coach.
