This image is a screenshot taken of a meeting within the Springfield College Football Team. The meeting is in the positional group of the runningbacks. The Coronavirus has interrupted our Spring season where we usually implement new plays and adjust things as new schemes. Instead we have adapted by holding positional group zoom meetings to discuss the adjustments on there. It is a major adjustment trying to learn the plays on a computer while talking about it on a large zoom call instead of being able to physically do it on the field with everyone.
I chose thing photo to bring awareness to athletes that offseason and current season are being affected. I would want researches to realize that some of these athletes have seen their final season of competitive sports flash before their eyes. I would also want them to realize that there are some athletes that will go home and have no resources to train or prepare their bodies for future sports seasons. This item shows the ways that athletes are having to adapt to not being able to be together and compete together.
