Trevor Lawrence was already known as one of the very best college football players coming into the 2020 season. Now, he’s cementing his legacy as one of the loudest voices in favor of having a 2020 season.

With the college football season hanging by a thread, Lawrence has been active on his Twitter account, giving example after example of why playing football is safe for the upcoming season.

On Saturday, the MAC became the first FBS conference to opt out of the fall football season, postponing all fall sports until at least spring. There’s potential that they’re not played at all this year. That got Power 5 commissioners and college presidents talking, at least in the B1G.

And now that there’s more momentum towards cancelling the college football season, Lawrence is speaking out.

“People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play,” Lawrence said on Twitter. “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 COVID-19.

“Not to mention the players coming from situations that are not good for them/their future and having to go back to that. Football is a safe haven for so many people. We are more likely to get the virus in everyday life than playing football. Having a season also incentivizes layers being safe and taking all of the right precautions to try to avoid contracting covid because the season/teammates safety is on the line. Without the season, as we’ve seen already, people will not social distance or wear masks and take the proper precautions.”


Sunday night, B1G presidents are scheduled to meet to discuss the outcome of the fall season.

Whatever it’s worth, Lawrence is fighting with all his might to encourage the season to be played this fall.
