Illinois linebacker Milo Eifler is using his voice and social media presence to speak about his unhappiness regarding the current push towards a college football season in the middle of a pandemic.

On Wednesday, Eifler took to Twitter to voice his disapproval of how schools are currently treating student-athletes. Last month, the NCAA lifted its moratorium on organized team activities, allowing colleges and universities to welcome back players for voluntary workouts.

While there has been no set decision on the 2020 college football season, Eifler isn’t pleased with the way things are trending.

“I understand that people want to see us play this season but in reality how can a team full of 100+ student athletes fully function during a pandemic,” Eifler said. “Trust, my teammates and I want to play. But schools around the country are showing blatant disregard for student athletes.

“For those college football players out there use your voice as a platform for change. The things we go through daily are never shown to the public this our chance to demand what’s right. A new way of thinking as opposed to just going through the motions.”

Illinois is one of the many athletic departments that has allowed student-athletes to return to campus in phases. While schools are taking precautions and implementing new guidelines to help decrease the spread of COVID-19, there have still been outbreaks on campuses.

Eifler received a lot of support from his teammates with the post on social media. Below are some of the responses:
