BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU, like many football programs across the country, has not been practicing this spring because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Tigers have to find a way to keep themselves active without in organized settings.
“It was weird because nothing stops football. It’s a weird situation because, in all the time I’ve been here, we’ve never had this much time off that wasn’t in may. I feel like I’m doing something wrong because I’m sitting at home all day long,” LSU punter Zach Von Rosenberg said.
The 2018 second team All-SEC punter is dealing with a reality his teammates are adjusting to as well. No spring practices, games or even classes left a lot of free time for Tigers to fill.
“A lot of guys are business as usual. They’re going to guys with weight rooms in their garages, and they’re kind of keeping the same mindset,” Von Ronsenberg continued.
With the coronavirus the cause of the sports’ world’s hiatus, the senior Tiger is hoping people cooperate in order to get through the perplexing circumstances.
“If we do all take it seriously for a two to three week period, we can get back to life as normal, but until people do take it seriously, it might be a longer, and longer and longer period of time.”
