Kansas State Football Team Announces Program Protest

Mike Seals - June 28, 2020 11:07 pm

After two individual players began the charge late on Thursday night, the Kansas State football team has officially made a team-wide stance. The Wildcats have stated they will not play or practice football until their demands are met.

Student-athletes at the school began speaking out after a tweet from a K-State student that was described as “disgusting” by athletic director Gene Taylor surfaced online. All-American return man Josh Youngblood and newcomer Tee Denson initially said that they would not represent K-State anymore until change was made at the school. Now, that has spread to the entire team.

In a graphic posted by Youngblood and countless other football players at K-State, the team listed their demands. The players said until a policy is put in place that, “allows a student to be dismissed for displaying openly racist, threatening or disrespectful action toward a student or groups of students,” they will no longer participate in team activities.
