Five-star QB Trevor Lawrence lives up to hype as Cartersville (Ga.) edges Bartram Trail (Fla.) in GEICO ESPN High School Kickoff

When ESPN added a game between Cartersville (Ga.) and Bartram Trail (Fla.) to its GEICO High School Football Kickoff series, it clearly foresaw interest driven by a matchup between five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence of Cartersville and four-star quarterback/athlete prospect Joey Gatewood. While Bartram Trail rallying from a 28-point first half deficit to force a fourth quarter tie deserves plenty of attention and praise, it was the game’s two biggest stars who shone brightest in Cartersville’s 52-47 victory.
