Clemson University student-athletes plan to stage a demonstration Saturday evening at Bowman Field, according to city administrator Andy Blondeauk, who expects the event to be attended by up to 2,000 people, including Tigers head football coach Dabo Swinney.

"Dabo is going to be introducing Trevor Lawrence and Darien Rencher, who are going to be the primary speakers, from what I understand," Blondeau told members of the Clemson economic development advisory committee, made up of several downtown Clemson merchants.

As reported by the Greenville News, the protest is student-led and not an official university event, Clemson athletic department spokesperson Jeff Kallin said Tuesday. Kallin would neither confirm nor deny the event is led by football players. City police chief Jeff Stone said no permits are required for the demonstration.
