Corey Flagg 4th Down Stop in State Title Game
HIGHLIGHT: Huge defensive stand by the @NSNationFB defense as @CanesFootball signee @CoreyFlaggJr drops the boom on the ball carrier here. What a play on 4th and goal inside their own 5 to force a turnover. #txhsfb #UILState @MaxPreps @dctf @Dematrius09 @NSSH_Mustangs pic.twitter.com/yZpEiVJiE3

Super proud of @twin1marcus, going to need to change his name to Mr. 805. Just broke the Regional record with a squat of 805 LB's and made it look easy.#GatorPride pic.twitter.com/KNFsuvcGJl

The Coronavirus outbreak has sent a shock wave of anxiety and concern throughout the world of sports. Here in the United States the MLB, NBA, MLS and even the new XFL have postponed or canceled their seasons. The NCAA even cancelled March Madness. Entire seasons in gymnastics, baseball, tennis and numerous other sports have been put on hold or cancelled.
Athletes in junior high, high school and college are not going to school as we wait and see how bad this crisis gets and how long it last.
With the sudden halt of these seasons, and the lack of the structured environment that school provides, hundreds of thousands of athletes throughout the country must face a serious transition. This transition forces the athlete to face a number of key stressors and losses that could have an impact on one's mental and emotional health and well-being.
