NCAA Shuts Down Trevor Lawrence’s Coronavirus Fundraiser

The NCAA shut down Trevor Lawrence’s coronavirus fundraiser this past week.

Lawrence and his girlfriend, Marissa Mowry, started a GoFundMe page to raise cash for victims of COVID-19. Unfortunately, the NCAA took exception to that decision.

As a result, Clemson’s compliance department had to shut it down.

“Unfortunately Trevor cannot be a part of this anymore due to compliance and some rules, so he can’t help out anymore,” Mowry said in a video on her Instagram page.

“And also we have to take down the GoFundMe page.”

Prior to the fundraiser getting shut down, it raised $2,500.

“Despite all of the craziness and drama with that we were able to raise a little over $2,500. So all of that’s going to go to Meals on Wheels and No Kid Hungry, which is super awesome,” Lawrence said.

“Thank you guys, all of y’all that donated. It’s really much appreciated. It’s going to help some kids and some elderly [people] somewhere, so it’s going to be very helpful.”

Lawrence will likely go pro after next season, so he won’t have to deal with nonsense like this much longer.
