College Football Playoff National Champion and potential starting quarterback for The Ohio State University Cardale Jones cemented his support of the Black Lives Matter movement on Thursday morning after a fan told him told him to concentrate on football.

Jones — who rose to national prominence after becoming the third starting quarterback for the Buckeyes in 2014 — stopped a fan in his tracks after the fan told the young football player to keep his mind on winning another championship.

Jones replied: “Sorry Mr master, I aints allow to tweet nothing but foolsball stuff I donts want you to think I more than a foots ball playa sir”

#BlackLivesMatter has been gaining allies across the sports world and pop culture since its inception after Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012.

The fan, who went by the username @DGus1228, deleted his account shortly thereafter, but not before TPM got a screengrab of the exchange.
