In rise of Corona Virus concerns, schools and sports nationwide have been temporarily stopped. With uncertainty ahead, Valerie Little, Prosper’s Athletic Director, has advised players and coaches alike to “get through it the best (they) can”. This is exactly what they have done. The Basketball and Football team have taken to Twitter to alert players that there is a Google Classroom set up dedicated entirely to giving them off-season at-home workouts. If there is a best-case scenario, then Volleyball, Football, Wrestling, and Basketball are in it. With off season their current focus, they should be set for next year. 

How is this affecting Spring sports? Well I would call this worst-case scenario for them. Soccer was stopped just before playoffs, and Baseball/Softball were barely into district play. Currently, the UIL has stated all sports are set to resume at the start of April. However, all of this is still very up in the air. If one thing is certain, it’s that Prosper athletes won’t allow this to affect their mentality for the remainder of the season. Varsity Baseball player, Chase Pendley, said he’d continue “grinding as always” and hopes this “won’t be the situation for long”.
