Physical Appearance

Lawrence is buff and has a brown mustache. He wears typical gym teacher clothes such as sweatpants, a T-shirt, and a red hat.

Personality

Lawrence appears to be your tough-surly gym leader stereotype, but he also tries his best to emotionally connect with Steve as his new stepson. He isn't very bright and not very good class teacher, though, because he ends up as a substitute, and lets the class watch Gun Robot 3.

Powers & Abilities

Powers

  • Gravesand-Induced State (briefly): After unintentionally drinking Gravesand, it amplified Lawrence's feral instincts ten-fold, thus making him more stronger and aggressive. Luckily, Steve managed to break him free from his feral curse by accepting him as a friend and his stepfather.
    • Superhuman Strength: Lawrence was strong enough to throw Logan's phone a very good distance, pop a dodgeball with his bare hands, and rip a climbing rope off its hook with ease.

Abilities

Weaknesses

  • Mortality: As a human, Lawrence possesses a mortal soul, so is therefore highly vulnerable to any forms of injuries, sicknesses, and death.

Equipment

Relationships

Family

Family

Mrs. Palchuk-Lawrence

Mrs. Palchuk is Coach Lawrence's new wife. They clearly love each other and Lawrence even defends his wife after she and Steve get into an argument. He tries his best to help his new wife get over hers and her son's hostility with each other ever since Mr. Palchuk left.

Steve Palchuk

Coach Lawrence is also trying his best to prove himself as a worthy father figure to Steve, but he's not being good at it, because he almost always reveals embarrassing things about Steve at school.

Although their relationship somewhat improves after Steve saves Lawrence from his Gravesand curse, Steve is still kind of embarrassed to be around him.

Friends/Allies

Friends

Karl Uhl

As staff members, Lawrence and Uhl seem to get along with each other.

Lenora Janeth

As staff members, Lawrence and Janeth have a professional relationship. They were seen judging the science fair together in "D'aja Vu".

AAARRRGGHH!!!

It is unknown how and when Coach Lawrence and AAARRRGGHH!!! first met, but it can be presumed that it was during the two weeks after the Eternal Night when Toby introduced AAARRRGGHH!!! to everyone in Arcadia.

In "Ill Gotten Gains" Coach Lawrence was surprised that AAARRRGGHH!!! attended summer school with Toby and the other students. He then imagined having him join the school on the wrestling team which could "finally make it to state" as he put it.

Students

Students

Eli Pepperjack

Lawrence is frequently hard on Eli because he is wimpy and unathletic. However, briefly shown in "In the Hall of the Gumm-Gumm King", Lawrence was impressed by Eli's improvements when he backflips from a rope perfectly. 

Aja and Krel Tarron

Coach Lawrence sees Aja as one of his star athletes while he's amazed by Krel's high intellect. In "Ill Gotten Gains", he was genuinely confused why the siblings had to go to summer school, and even defends them from Kubritz's accusations when she calls them aliens (which he and everyone else took as "illegal aliens").

Enemies

Enemies

Colonel Kubritz

Coach Lawrence finds Kubritz rather deplorable, especially after she lied to him about a fatal disease infecting Arcadia Oaks High when he realized that she merely staged a phony quarantine just to capture Aja and Krel.

Trivia

  • Coach Lawrence is currently the only teacher whose first name is never revealed.
  • Lawrence reveals in "Collision Course" that he takes Pilates.
  • In the episode "Return of the Trollhunter", Coach Lawrence asks his students what happened in 1989 while filling in for Mr. Strickler's history class (claiming he doesn't remember it since it was a crazy year). This could be a reference to his voice actor, Tom Wilson, portraying Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future franchise and was the main antagonist in Part 2 (which was released in theaters in 1989).
  • In the episode "The Reckless Club", Coach Lawrence was in the 1972 yearbook with Ms. Janeth, making him roughly 60 years old.
