Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne, two of the biggest offensive cogs for the defending national champion Tigers, lead the 2019 College Football America Yearbook Preseason Dream Team.

Lawrence, just a sophomore and a leading Heisman Trophy candidate, led the Tigers to the title as a true freshman, throwing for 3,280 yards and 30 touchdowns. Etienne, a junior who has been a centerpiece for Clemson’s rushing offense the past two seasons, rushed for 1,658 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2018.

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 Wisconsin RB Jonathan Taylor, Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy, Oklahoma State WR Tylan Wallace, Michigan State DT Kenny Willekes, Miami (FL) LB Shaquille Quarterman and Virginia CB Bryce Hall.

The 2019 College Football America 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 CFAY staff.

The print edition is available online via Amazon.com and other major retailers such as BarnesandNoble.com and Books-A-Million.
