The spring high school season has been delayed during the coronavirus outbreak and many athletes are worried it could be canceled.

Bell, a 5-11, 165-pound lockdown defender, was looking at this season as a key for his college recruitment. It also is a chance to finally play with Elijah, a 5-10, 150-pound sophomore goalkeeper, and Aaron, a 5-9, 140-pound eighth-grade attackman.
