If you’re looking for ways to effectuate change, the Missouri football team has you covered with one plan we found to be particularly awesome.

On Wednesday, the Mizzou Athletics Twitter account shared a picture of some student-athletes walking together on campus. The tweet included the caption, “Together.”

Afterward, Gabe DeArmond of Rivals shared that Mizzou basketball coach Cuonzo Martin and the Tigers football team’s defensive coordinator Ryan Walters were marching with the student-athletes.


He also found out that the march was organized by the football team. It went through the campus and ended at the courthouse in downtown Columbia. Once there, 52 football players registered to vote.


This is a huge statement without saying a thing.

If you’re fed up with the way things are going in this nation, the best possible thing you can do is get out there and vote. Too many Americans stand on the sidelines, rather than exercising their right to vote.

Kudos to the Missouri football team for taking action. And for doing it together.
