You can watch Zion’s comments below!

As I’ve said many times over the past few months, athletes and coaches have a special platform in America, and they should use it.

Whether you support masks or not, it’s never a bad thing when people with massive platforms use them to promote safety.

Personally, I don’t know if wearing the mask makes a big difference or not. I don’t have a clue, but if wearing a mask helps save sports, then I’ll wear a mask when I’m in the store and other public places.

Hell, I’d sell organs to save college football. Wearing a mask is a very minor inconvenience that could have a huge payoff down the road.

Props to Zion for using his platform to encourage people to stay safe during this tough time in America. You’ll never see me knock anyone for trying to help people out.
