This week, the club's original rallying cry, "Rising As One," took on a different meaning in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and the subsequent protests across the country.

In a statement, the club said the following:

Together we rise.

We rise against bigotry.
We rise against injustice.
We rise against violence.
We rise against racism.

We rise to stand with the Black community.

#RisingAsOne

The players echoed that message in their video to remind everyone of the importance of rising as one to combat systemic racism.
