Clemson’s Lawrence, Etienne lead College Football America Yearbook’s 2020 Preseason Dream Team

Trevor Lawrence

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne lead the 2020 College Football America Yearbook Preseason Dream Team.

Lawrence and Etienne have been a huge part of Clemson’s success the past two seasons, which included a 2018 FBS national championship, along with an appearance in the 2019 national title game against LSU. Lawrence, a junior, is coming off a season in which he threw for 3,665 yards and 36 touchdowns, with just eight interceptions.

Etienne, a senior, rushed for 1,614 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2019, and had more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage.

The College Football America Yearbook Dream Team is the publication’s version of a major college All-America Team with a twist. Instead of picking a first team, second team and/or third team, the team is presented in the context of an actual Football Bowl Subdivision program, with the book’s publisher, Kendall Webb, selecting the team in the role as “head coach.” FBS teams are limited to 85 scholarships, and the College Football America Yearbook Dream Team is subject to these same constraints.

Other top players included among the Starting Lineup, or First Team, are the Oklahoma State duo of running back Chuba Hubbard and wide receiver Tylan Wallace; the LSU duo wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase and cornerback Derek Stingley Jr.; and the Oregon trio of offensive lineman Penei Sewell, defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux and safety Jevon Holland.

The Dream Team also includes an incoming freshman class of some of the top recruits in the country, including Lawrence’s potential successor at Clemson, St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) quarterback DJ Uiagalelei

The College Football America 2020 Yearbook features more than 930 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes updates on club football, one-year postgraduate prep/sports academies and Mexican college football, along with dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.

The print edition is available online via and other major retailers such as Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.
