Texas A&M issues PSA from Jimbo Fisher challenging everyone to practice social distancing: 'Let's beat the hell out of COVID-19'
Jimbo Fisher calls the coronavirus outbreak “the toughest opponent of my lifetime” and is eager to do his part to put an end to the pandemic.
While sports have been shut down in College Station, Fisher hasn’t stopped working toward making his team as prepared as possible for the 2020 season.
However, in addition to his recruiting and film study for the Aggie football program, Fisher is also doing what he can to stop the spread of the coronavirus by urging every member of the 12th Man to step up and do their part.
“Aggies like to be together, we lock arms and sway, there’s hardly any social distancing around here until now. We have to,” Fisher says in the video below. “We’ll join the rest of the country, and the world, in making sure our student-athletes are back on the field and court, wherever they compete. Right now, we have to stick together, just not all in the same place, six feet apart, no matter where you are.”
For good measure, Fisher issued one final thought as the nation’s ongoing social distancing initiative rolls on several weeks into the process.
“Do the right thing, stay at home, take care of each other, and let’s beat the hell out of COVID-19. Gig ‘Em,” Fisher added.
