How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : During the pandemic I’ve been great actually. The pandemic has gave me an easier way to get recruited for college. In high school I’ve always had a high GPA but I struggled with the SAT/ACT. When the pandemic came along test scores weren’t mandated for most schools. Which is also one of the reasons why I chose the school I’m at today. Additionally, with the pandemic going on it gave all athletes to play an additional year of college football if needed.
