5-star quarterback recruit Trevor Lawrence is the new Georgia all-time passing leader. He broke Deshaun Watson’s record from when he was in high school there.

Watson had 12,961 passing yards when he played in the Peach State. He also had 155 touchdowns in his high school career. Watson was then the No. 2 quarterback in the country, before deciding to continue his playing career with the Clemson Tigers.

He has since moved onto to play for the Houston Texans after being the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
