Three Oklahoma State football players have joined the "We Want To Play" movement to combat officials wanting to cancel the upcoming season due to the coronavirus.

The three players, running back Chuba Hubbard, defensive tackle Brendon Evers and wide receiver Dee Anderson, all voiced their message on their respective social media accounts.

"My momma still working #WeWantToPlay," Anderson said in a tweet.

Hubbard's tweet featured the "#WeWantToPlay," but also included a popular graphic that many players are using to spread the message.

Evers tweeted the "#WeWantToPlay," but also spread the message of Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who's a prominent leader in the campaign.

People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play," Lawrence said in a tweet. "Players will all be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract COVID-19."
