One day after Rutgers athletic director Pat Hobbs issued a statement in the death of George Floyd, the football program released a powerful black and white video on social media on Monday.

Captain Tyshon Fogg is the first player shown, stating, “We are more than just football players here to entertain.” Multiple players appear throughout the minute-plus video, with head coach Greg Schiano the last to appear, saying, “It’s time for us all to come together and chop for change.” Martin Luther King’s quote, “The time is always right to do what is right”, is included at the end of the video.
