Many of Ohio State’s student athletes and staff members took place in the Kneel For Nine demonstration, which was a nine-minute kneel to remember George Floyd, who was killed by police when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

The event included police officers, as well as many student athletes, including Ohio State wide receiver C.J. Saunders, who was arrested Tuesday night for being out past curfew.

Other members who were in attendance include athletic director Gene Smith, president Michael Drake, assistant men’s basketball coach Terry Johnson, director of sports performance Mickey Marotti, vice president of student life Melissa Shivers and director of football player development Ryan Stamper.
