SSN: QNA with J Bush

March 27, 2020

Q: What are some things you’re doing to stay involved with your sport even though we can’t play? A: I have been throwing and hitting with a few of my teammates trying to stay in shape. I have also been in my backyard throwing and working on catching with my little brother everyday. Q: How does the Coronavirus effect you and your sport specifically? A: Coronavirus effects my sport because it has pushed back our season. Many of us were looking forward to getting back onto the field and playing the game we love with our brothers but we hopefully only have to wait until May 1st to get back out there. However, with the Coronavirus infection rate rising everyday, I have no idea if we will be able to play at all. Q: What’re your feelings towards the situation at hand? A: I personally am not a fan of this situation because my teammates and I aren't able to compete and play the sport we love. I have empathy for the seniors who don't get a chance to play one last season at HSE. Some have baseball scholarships and some don't, so the seniors that were working for them, they don't get that chance anymore and I feel bad for them. Q: What advice could you give to other athletes experiencing the same thing? A: Keep working hard. Even though gyms are closed, it doesn't mean you can't get a good workout in. Coach K always has workouts for us, so there is no reason for us not to be in shape when it's go time. Also keep in touch with your teammates and keep the relationships with them so when the season starts, the team chemistry is even higher....

March 27, 2020

Q: What are some things you're doing to stay involved with your sport even though we can't play? A: I'm just trying to stay and shape and keep my skills up. We also have a group chat that keeps all of us connected as a team even though we can't play or practice with each other for a while. Q: How does the Coronavirus effect you and your sport specifically? A: Getting your season suspended is tough for lacrosse because you're very limited on how you can practice without a lot of space and a goal. Q: What're your feelings towards the situation at hand? A: When I first heard the news I was originally pretty mad, but I've found ways to keep myself busy between practicing in the yard or watching our old games. Q: What advice could you give to other athletes experiencing the same thing? A: I would tell other athletes to get creative and stay positive. Try to find ways to practice that you normally wouldn't think of....

Q: What are some things you're doing to stay involved with your sport even though we can't play? A: To stay involved in lacrosse, I go on runs everyday or try to find another way to be active. I try to do wall ball everyday, or at least touch my stick in some way. I also like to watch film on our previous games to see what I can work on. Q: How does the Coronavirus effect you and your sport specifically? A: For lacrosse, the season is suspended until at least May 1st. We can't have any organized practices until then. After we get back, playoffs are supposed to start in mid may. Q: What're your feelings towards the situation at hand? A: I feel that it's gotten out of control. I think some of the things we are doing would benefit everyone if people would listen and participate in not meeting up with friends and actually listen to the social distancing recommendation. Q: What advice could you give to other athletes experiencing the same thing? A: I would tell everyone to hope for the best and really try to stay home. Don't let the virus take away your sport, you can still go outside and practice alone or with a family member. Lastly, try to stay positive!...
