College Football Players Associatio­n


Led by Penn State quarterbac­k Sean Clifford, Big Ten players reportedly have had discussion­s with Warren about the changing landscape of college sports and how it impacts student-athletes. No Maryland players were part of those discussion­s, according to a team spokespers­on.

Clifford released a statement Friday, saying, “In the last 90 days, the [College Football Players Associatio­n] presented interestin­g ideas to me and my teammates with the goal of joining their college football players associatio­n. However, at this time, I along with many players are committed to working at the campus and conference level to address complexiti­es of collegiate athletics for student-athletes.”

The CFPA was founded in 2021 to make sure college football players are organized to have a collective voice in the decision-making within their sport. However, executive director Jason Stahl said the CFPA doesn’t classify itself as a union.

According to ESPN, Stahl spoke with Warren about having a representa­tive on each campus who advocates for players during medical situations or other disputes, post-football health protection­s and players receiving a percentage of the media rights revenue.
