Texas A&M Student-Athletes Resume Voluntary Activities

Texas A&M student-athletes resumed voluntary activities yesterday.

According to a press release from Texas A&M Athletics, "The SEC suspended all athletics activities through May 31 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The league announced voluntary in-person athletics activities may resume on SEC campuses, at the discretion of each university, beginning June 8 under strict supervision of designated university personnel and safety guidelines developed by each institution."

"The SEC assembled a Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force which prepared a series of best practices for all areas related to the health and wellbeing of student-athletes on campuses during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to these measures and those recommended by state, university, and public health officials, Texas A&M Athletics instituted a series of enhanced safety protocols."

NCAA regulations will permit only strength and conditioning personnel to supervise voluntary on-campus athletics activities in football and men's and women's basketball through the month of June.

Aggie Quarterback Kellen Mond was among the players that voluntarily resumed activies.

Hopefully this first step of many, that will lead us to having college football this fall.
