D9and10Sports: What will you tell your kids someday about living through the COVID-19 pandemic?
A: I would tell them that living through Covid-19 was hard because of the masks, social distancing, and worrying about your loved ones getting sick. But, the good thing to come out of it was having more downtime with my family.

D9and10Sports: Is there anything you wish we would have asked you? If so, what is the answer?
