Episode 2 of Champions Adjust Is LIVE!

Parents and coaches sound off about sports shutdown

Coach Simeon Henderson

Where were you when you heard the news of sports being cancelled in Illinois? What was your reaction? As an athlete, I felt as if the world was truly ending, but as a champion you just adjust to adversity by putting in more work.

In this second and latest episode of True Star’s mini doc series Champions Adjust, coaches and parents give their perspectives about the season, the virus and the sports shutdown. Sukhari Shaw, a parent of a student athlete, made it clear that she didn’t agree with Pritzker’s plan. “I’m watching college students play, professional players play so I understand that it can be done. … I’m very unhappy with his decision in regards to that.”
