We are all hearing the argument is it safe to play football for these kids? Let's flip that around for a second. What if it is actually safer for them to play football than not to? Here is my argument. Is it safer for these kids to be in a highly accountable environment where they are tested for Covid on a regular basis and those they are regularly around are also tested? These kids will be told what activities will help them avoid getting sick and they will be working out regularly to stay healthy and fit. We are under the assumption that if football is cancelled they will stay home locked in a sterile environment where Covid does not exist. The reality is, if football is cancelled these kids are hanging out with their friends (who have not been tested) and lose the accountability of a head coach where their decision making may not be up to a head coach's standards. They will not be tested regularly and will be working out less and more susceptible to getting sick. I'm not saying that football is the safer choice, but thinking that the cancelling of the season will save the lives of all of these college football players and families is not a true statement. Covid is everywhere. I would rather have them in an environment where they are being tested and where their actions are held to a higher standard and where going to parties in the middle of the night is prohibited. That to me will keep them and their families safer.
