운동 트레이너가 부족하면 Alcorn State의 게임이 취소 될 위험이 있습니다.

전임 운동 트레이너, 프레드 워디, was hired early at the end of January, 7월에 퇴사하여 민간 의료계로 복귀. The Alcorn State athletic department did not immediately hire someone to replace him, and instead outsourced the job on a part-time basis to two trainers.

The two part-time athletic trainers tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the team’s game last weekend against Northwestern State, so Worthy was brought back on just to get the team through the weekend. But after players came in Sunday to receive treatment, Worthy informed the staff he would not be able to come back on Monday.

What this story boils down to is a lack of spending from Alcorn State, though nobody will likely go on the record to express that opinion. Head coach Fred McNair let his frustration boil over publicly, though he didn’t elaborate.

This is something that needs to be fixed. This is an administration issue,” McNair said.

The entire situation feels eerily similar to Grambling State’s 2013 program boycott over the administration’s funding of their program. Rumors around the Alcorn State campus suggest that the team’s 2020 season cancellation, officially attributed to COVID-19, was actually a result of understaffing. 분명히, neither a full-time strength coach nor an athletic trainer were available last season for Alcorn State.

Now headed into the marquee FBS game of the year, a game in which Alcorn is slated to make a much-needed $ 360,000 for participating, the team is staring down a forfeit (and breach of contract) because they can’t guarantee the safety of their players.

We’re not going to put them on the field if we don’t think they’re safe,” an anonymous source within the program said. “우리, as a staff, aren’t going to do that.
