COVID-19 has recently escalated to a global pandemic in a matter of months.
While scientists race to find solutions for the outbreak, countries have gone on lockdown and have banned large gatherings.
Most sports leagues have also followed suit, including the NBA, NCAA, NFL, and MLS. Texas' own University Interscholastic League (UIL) has announced suspension of all activities until at least May 4th, putting a stop to high school sports throughout the state due to growing COVID-19 concerns.

Nimitz's Jared Flores is trying to live out his father's dream on the pitch.
"My dad played in Honduras and he was trying to go pro over there," Flores said. "My mom had me and he went to work to support his family. Now, I'm trying to complete his dream to go pro."
Flores helped Nimitz win District 16-6A last season going undefeated and then knocked off Klein Oak in the first round.
The senior has learned the game playing against some elite competition. "I've been playing with ex-pro players my entire life with my dad," he said. "I've gotten my experience from them. They have taught me the game and that has given me a lot of confidence over the years."
