UGA, GT Players Show Solidarity With Anti-NCAA Protest

ATHENS (AP) – Some football players from Georgia, Georgia Tech and Northwestern had the letters APU — All Players United — written on their gear during Saturday’s games as a show of solidarity that organizers hope will lead to changes in the NCAA.

National College Players Association, an advocacy group for college athletes, organized All Players United and launched the campaign Saturday with an announcement on its web site.

Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee had APU written on his wrist tape, along with several other Yellow Jackets during their 28-20 home win against North Carolina that was televised on ESPN.

ESPN reported that Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter also had APU written on his wrist tape and some Georgia offensive linemen had it written on their gear.
