Louisiana State University Football Coach Ed Orgeron Says ‘Most’ of the Players Have Caught the Coronavirus

The university began to report aggregate positive coronavirus on Aug. 15, when students began returning to campus. Since then, the school has confirmed more than 750 COVID-19 cases, with 50 positive cases from Sept. 11 to Sept. 13.

“I think most — not all of our players — but most of our players have caught it,” Football Coach Ed Orgeron said during a teleconference. “So, I think hopefully they don’t catch it again and hopefully they’re not out for games.”

“I’m not going to say all of them,” he continued when asked for clarification. “But some players have caught it. I don’t know the percentage. Hopefully, that once you catch it, you don’t get it again.”

Orgeron said that the team currently has “about three or four guys” who have the virus and that a few players were in quarantine — although he didn’t specify an exact number.

He added that all but two or three offensive linemen missed practice because of testing two weeks ago.

“Were probably better off than we’ve been all camp right now going into the season, obviously we have to be really careful,” Orgeron said. “Our guys feel good.”
