Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is among several higher-profile college football players posting on social media that they want to play this season. Lawrence tweeted on Sunday: “Let’s work together to create a situation where we can play the game that all of us love. Not divide and argue. There is a way forward.” Lawrence posted a separate tweet with the hashtag #WeWantToPlay. North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell posted the same hashtag tweet. Another longer Lawrence tweet read in part: “People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play. Players will all be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract covid19.” Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields echoed Lawrence’s sentiments on Sunday.
