As we continue to march into the unknown

I’ve been on several Zoom calls with players the last few days, and their bravery is amazing and inspiring. Some are on teams that don’t even know who they’ll play next week. No one knows how many games they’ll actually end up playing, as the season could be shut down at any time. They are literally walking into the unknown.

They love the game, and they want to play. I have to salute their courage, while at the same time sending them love and prayer.
