We all know an athlete who has been committed to play college sports since their sophomore year in high school. It is obvious that they have done well through high school and they are going to bring a lot of success to their new collegiate teams.
In fact, with a stroke of luck, they probably will win a conference championship, earn a seed in the national tournament and could play for a national championship.
This fall is their freshman year — and the pandemic has derailed their master plan. More than likely, you are not this athlete. You committed to play sports at a college that was not heavily pursuing you, and frankly,that is OK. It does not matter, because the playing field is even. All our plans have changed. All our momentum has been stripped. All our motivation to be the best version of ourselves has dwindled.
