JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Applause and cheers greeted Trevor and Marissa Lawrence as they arrived for the very first time at TIAA Bank Field on Friday.

Trevor Lawrence was drafted in the first round by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

Local elementary school students held signs as the pair made their way through the crowd of photographers and onlookers.

Trevor Lawrence stopped to ask what grade the kids were in and then, as to not steal the spotlight, he asked the kids if they had signs or knew of Travis Etienne. 

Etienne was the team's second pick in the first round and played with Trevor Lawrence at Clemson.

Trevor is expected to host a news conference at 2:30 p.m. You can watch that live on WTLV.

The official Jaguars Twitter posted a video of him hopping off a private jet shortly after noon on Friday.
