'You don’t want to ever put student-athletes at greater risk than the rest of the student body'
(FOX NEWS) – The NCAA has made it clear that unless college campuses are open to the entire student body in the fall, there are no plans to risk the health of student-athletes for the sake of sports.
President Mark Emmert plainly said Friday night that the NCAA will not play fall sports if the coronavirus pandemic forces schools to close campuses in the coming months.
“College athletes are college students, and you can’t have college sports if you don’t have college [campuses] open and having students on them,” Emmert said, according to the NCAA’s Twitter.
“You don’t want to ever put student-athletes at greater risk than the rest of the student body.”
