With March Madness taking a hiatus this year due to the Coronavirus, VYPE has decided to come up with its own version of March Madness - video style!
The VYPE editorial team went back through the last few months and picked their favorite videos that went a little bit crazy on social media or just were cool, eye-popping moments. VYPE picked our 16 favorite videos and have made a four-week bracket challenge.
This is the 2020 VYPE Viral Video Madness.
VOTING Will Close Wednesday at 5 p.m.

Rubin Jones Dunk
Last week, the Southwest Preparatory Conference had ultimately decided to cancel spring sports for the remainder of the 2020 school year. It wasn't much of a shock to hear the news as major events are being cancelled left and right worldwide.
This all just doesn't feel real yet. As for me personally, Episcopal softball is still chasing the 4-peat. The training and grind during this quarantine wasn't meant for all of this to end just like that. So what now?
I am just a junior but I too have been impacted. Coming from an injury and being out a portion of the season we managed to have, it is one of the worst feelings not being able to play on the field again this year. My heart goes out to all of the seniors playing spring sports, especially the ones I have had the privilege to play on the field for my three years at Episcopal high school.
I got to interview Lexi Sagers, Julia Toups, two of our three seniors to ask them what senior year meant to them. Here are some of their thoughts about reflecting over a season that ended too soon and their years playing for Episcopal.
