College Football Team to Boycott Workouts Over Coach’s Response to Riots

florida state

A Florida State University football player announced he and his teammates will boycott workouts following first-year coach Mike Norvell’s response to the protests over the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died after having his neck pinned to the ground by a police officer’s knee.

In a tweet, defensive tackle Marvin Wilson refuted reporting by The Athletic that quoted Norvell saying he had individually spoken with every player.

He called Norvell’s claim a “lie” and said the team was “outraged.”
