Players Unite in Push to Save College Season, Create Union
College football players from across the country are uniting. They want to save a season threatened by the pandemic and make sure they won’t be left out of the big decisions anymore.
After Clemson star Trevor Lawrence sparked a movement by tweeting “we want to play,” he was contacted by a player activist from Michigan.
In a couple hours, two hashtags – WeWantToPlay and WeAreUnited – merged. Not only do the players want to play, but they want to create a players association for college football.
