The shutdown of schools and all sports programs has created quite a shock wave in the families, homes, and lives of athletes who suddenly find themselves without a sport. I have been receiving a lot of inquiries from parents seemingly lost on what to do with their athletes at home. Understandably this can be a tough transition for all family members involved.
I thought it timely to provide a few tips to help parents cope with this stressful time that we all find ourselves facing.
Kaedyn Sullivan is coming off a season to remember.
The junior quarterback helped lead The John Cooper School to a 7-2 overall record and a berth in the Southwest Preparatory Conference 3A Championship game.
Sullivan's success on the field has caught the attention of people and recently earned him an invite to the 2021 Hawaii Tiki Bowl.
"The invite was exciting to get because opportunities don't come around like that so often," Sullivan said. "It's great to have the ability to look back and see the progress that has come with the work I have put in."
The Hawaii Tiki Bowl is a five-day event with athletes arriving on December 30 and then playing the game itself on Sunday, January 4 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

Before that all-star game arrives, Sullivan has a senior year to take care of, which he is working this offseason to get ready for to reach his personal and team goals in 2020.
"I'm working with my coaches on breaking my entire game back down and piecing everything back together for a more clean and uniform style of play," Sullivan said. "The team goals for next season are to continue to help build the foundation the Dragon program and leaving a good mark when the season is over for the future teams.
"My personal goals are to clean my craft and be the best quarterback and leader for the Dragons that I can be."
