Ahh, Spring Break! A time of relaxation and renewal … unless you’re in the local sports business. Because this life I’ve chosen is so chaotic at times that you wouldn’t believe it if I told you, I’m just gonna tell you and let you choose whether to believe it. But it’s all true.
One of the hidden personal benefits of this horrible pandemic — a phrase that feels almost callous to even consider — is the opportunity it offered many of us to slow down and reflect.

The championship moments come to mind first, like Skylar Smith’s game-winning 3-pointer for Hilton Head Christian Academy or Tyler Haley’s clutch pass to McLeod Reichel to lead Beaufort High to a Lower State title.
