Top Michigan Player May Sit Out If NCAA Doesn’t Step Up With Covid Protocol

The parents of sophomore DT Christ Hinton shared this about needing to see more from the NCAA before they feel comfortable with their kids (Myles Hinton will be a freshman at Stanford) returning to the field.

“Mya and I are huge football fans,” Chris Hinton Sr. said. “We want to see a season. But we want it done safely and only if it makes sense.”

Hinton’s father, former NFL Pro Bowler Chris Hinton Sr., and his wife Mya told the Chicago Tribune they want NCAA to require uniform COVID-19 protocols for college football before they’ll send their kids back out on the field.

The Hintons created the advocacy group College Football Parents 24/7, which has grown in less than two months to nearly 2,000 parents of athletes. Their goal is to push the NCAA to make clear and uniform rules for colleges to bring back sports as the U.S. continues to struggle to contain the outbreak.
