More than 100 players from the Rice football team marched silently from Rice Stadium to the Aacademic Quad to protest racial injustice on Friday afternoon. While roll was not taken, head coach Mike Bloomgren said he believes that every member of the team and the coaching staff was present. Players spoke in the quad about the importance of affecting positive change, before the march concluded with a moment of silence to honor those killed as a result of racial discrimination.

According to swimmer Rebecca Brandt, this has left much of the team unable to practice their craft.
