Oklahoma State star linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga revealed that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. He was one of 30 players who returned to campus on Monday as the first phase of the school's athletes returning to campus.
Ogbongbemiga says despite protecting himself, he believes he got the virus attending a George Floyd protest in Tulsa. His advice for those attending protests is to, "take care of yourself and stay safe."
After attending a protest in Tulsa AND being well protective of myself, I have tested positive for COVID-19. Please, if you are going to protest, take care of yourself and stay safe.

A widespread outbreak as a result of the protests could be a disaster on top of a disaster for those attending protests. Or it could be a way to help with herd immunity, which could be another positive thing to come out of this terrible tragedy.
Let's hope whatever happens, we get our sports back. Nothing brings people from all walks of life together like sports and beer. I think we could all use more of both right now.
