Trevor Lawrence hopes to play the 2020 season

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is one of the superstars of college football.

Usually, when he says something, people stand up and take notice because of the respect that many have for him.

As the college football season is under more uncertainty by the day, Lawerence shared on social media that he thinks the season should not get canceled.

"Let's work together to create a situation where we can play the game that all of us love. Not divide and argue. There is a way forward," he posted.

Lawrence understands that if players are sent home, they will still be at risk for the virus.

"People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don't play," he said. "Players will all be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely, and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract COVID-19. Not to mention the players coming from situations that are not good for them/ their future and having to go back to that. Football is a safe haven for so many people."

Lawrence believes players could be more susceptible to the virus without football.

"We are more likely to get the virus in everyday life than playing football. Having a season also incentivizes Players being safe and taking all of the right precautions to try to avoid contracting COVID-19 because the season/teammates safety is on the line. Without the season, as we've seen already, people will not social distance or wear masks and take the proper precautions."
