Lawrence and teammate Darien Rencher worked with almost a dozen college football players from around the country late Sunday night to craft a message imploring the sport's leadership to not nix the season amid safety concerns created by the coronavirus pandemic.

"So we feel that we have a plan here to play safely, and I feel that we can get that done". All these players, we have lots of communication. "If you told me if we canceled football that nobody'd get the virus, I'd be the first person to sign up".
"The worry with the U.S.is, and this is something I put to the sports as well, we all do want sports back, but it's going to be incredibly aggravating if we try and bring it back and we have to cancel the season because it's not working", she said.
