Trevor Lawrence named captain by Jacksonville Jaguars teammates


The Jacksonville Jaguars showed their faith in Trevor Lawrence back in April by selecting the quarterback with the top overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.

On Wednesday, the Jaguars doubled down by naming the rookie one of seven team captains for the upcoming season. The captains were decided by a player vote.

Lawrence was named the team’s starter following a training camp battle with the since-traded Gardner Minshew II.

The 21-year-old Lawrence threw for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in three seasons at Clemson. The 6-foot-6 quarterback also ran for 943 yards and 18 scores.

Joining Lawrence as a Jaguars’ team captain are defensive end/linebacker Josh Allen, cornerback Shaq Griffin, linebacker Myles Jack, safety Rayshawn Jenkins, center Brandon Linder and wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr.

The Jaguars open their season at the Houston Texans on Sunday.
