As discussions continue among conference leaders about how best to run a college football season during a pandemic that has claimed the lives of more than 145,000 Americans, one group has notably been absent from the conversation as official: student athletes who will put their health at risk. So they decided to take matters into their own hands.A group of hundreds of Pac-12 football players announced on Sunday that they would withdraw from all upcoming training camps and games unless the conference negotiates with them and reaches a legal agreement regarding the practices of health and safety, while also addressing issues of racial injustice and economic inequality. . With a virus showing no signs of slowing down and constant civil rights protests across the country, the lockdown comes at one of the most critical times in this country’s history.
