Joe Burrow speaks out about COVID-19 outbreak
BATON ROUGE- LSU's star quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow spoke out on social media for the first time Wednesday morning about the COVID-19 pandemic.
LSU Football posted the video of Burrow addressing the outbreak on Twitter from the comfort of his home.
The Heisman Trophy shares the frame with Burrow throughout the video, peeking out from behind him on display.
Burrow begins the video referring to the pandemic as "crazy."
"It's more important now than ever to follow the directions that the government lays out. Right now they're saying to stay inside, self-quarantine, wash your hands, limit the spread of this virus so we can flatten the curve a little bit and get back to a normal life. The only way we can do that is if we follow instructions," Burrow says.
He also shines a light on the children that are out of school during the stay-at-home order, reminding others to give back.
"I think something really important right now is a lot of kids in Ohio get their meals from school, so I think donations to the food bank if you're financially able, are really important right now."
Burrow ends his statement by saying "Everyone, stay inside, stay quarantined, and geaux tigers."
