JACKSONVILLE, Fla – You can apparently now add an interior designer to Trevor Lawrence’s resume.
Jacksonville Jaguars fan Logan Nugent turned to the No.1 pick after his fiancee, Amber Phommathep, rejected his idea of hanging three Jaguars jerseys in the living room of their new Jacksonville home. After a bit of negotiation, Phommathep agreed he could hang them – if he could somehow get Lawrence to recognize him.
So Nugent took to Twitter and submitted his request on June 9. He tagged Lawrence, defensive end Josh Allen and linebacker Myles Jack in the tweet describing his fiancé’s condition… then he waited and hoped.
Eight days later, Thursday, Lawrence replied, “HANG EM ‘UP!”
“It got crazy from there,” Nugent said. “My phone hasn’t stopped ringing since 7 p.m. [Thursday] night.”
The jerseys aren’t ready yet – the couple started moving into their home at the end of the week – but Nugent is hoping to have them hung by Sunday as he’s still waiting to pick up Lawrence’s teal jersey from the frame store. They don’t know where they will be placed – it will either be the wall in front of the TV or under the bar – but Nugent ceded the order to Phommathep, who decided that Lawrence’s No.16 teal would be hung between the black of Jack. No. 44 and Allen’s white No. 41.
There was, however, some opposition from one of the Jaguars’ most beloved players of all time. After Allen responded to Nugent’s tweet urging Lawrence to respond, Calais Campbell responded to Allen’s tweet by saying “Not in the living room.”
But Campbell, who is now with the Baltimore Ravens, said he loves die-hard fans.
HANG UP THEM! https://t.co/0TPjVndkdc

Nugent and Phommathep are both Jacksonville natives and Jaguars fans, although their fervor for the team has grown significantly in recent years. So much so that he and Phommathep took their engagement photos wearing Jaguars No.21 swimsuits – the number signified the year of their marriage – with “NUGENT” on the back.
The wedding is slated for Dec. 4, and the honeymoon will include participation in the Dec. 12 Jaguars game against Tennessee in Nashville.
Lawrence’s tweet urging the jerseys to be hung had generated more than 50,000 likes by Friday night.
“They don’t have to do stuff like that [respond to fans’ tweets], and I know they get tweets like this all day, “Nugent said.” It’s awesome. “
