Nick Garrett is taking the shutdown during the coronavirus pandemic in stride.
The Riverside Military Academy head football coach is teaching his students online and staying in contact with his football team. He's using video conferencing to just check in with the football team.
"We had our first complete week last week," he said. "It's really been exciting for not only the cadets but for us. We're having to learn and add more tools to our toolbox to be better teachers and advocates for our students."
Spring football is set for mid-April and if school is still out, there will be no practice. Garrett knows that's a big possibility given the current situation with the spread of COVID-19.
"There's no way to replace that face to face interaction," he said. "We're using the remind app and will try to attempt a zoom meeting soon because that's what the college coaches are doing. So, we're going to try to utilize some of those platforms. Outside of that, we've been sending out some stuff out to our kids to work on."
