COVID was found to be present in my system.

MARSHALL FAULK, NFL LEGEND, URGES AMERICANS TO GET INFORMED ABOUT THE COVID-19 VACCINE NFL Alumni Health teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to launch a national education campaign about the coronavirus vaccination.
In a news statement earlier this month, NFL Alumni CEO Beasley Reece stated, “As a country, we’ve done a lot–individually and collectively–to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.”
“We may be in the’red zone,’ but the war is far from finished.”

“That’s what this is all about,” says the narrator.
If we can convince people to do that, then this campaign and all we’re doing will be worthwhile.
Simply put, stop listening to non-doctors and start listening to your doctors.
“Sit down with a health care practitioner and hear what they have to say about the benefits of doing it versus not doing it, and what the implications are if you do it,” Fox News’ Dan Canova said.

When an offense can put a hat on a hat — that is, account for every defender in the box with a blocker — it usually feels good about its ground game prospects.
Flip that setup to give the defense the upper hand?
Quarterbacks usually bail when facing a pass, but that isn’t always the case with the run-and-shoot strategy.

Getting to know incoming Wisconsin Athletic Director Chris McIntosh: From on-field success to succeeding Barry Alvarez

Chris McIntosh became Wisconsin’s athletic director during one of the most pivotal moments in the history of college sports.
McIntosh, who joined the Badgers athletic department in 2014, took over as AD on July 1, the same day that the name, image, and likeness era began. McIntosh spoke with The Athletic on Monday about navigating NIL, how his time as a Badgers All-American offensive lineman impacts him in his current role, his abrupt NFL retirement, and following in Alvarez’s footsteps.
The quick response is that it has been fantastic.
That is, as you are aware, an tremendously exciting period.
It’s a historic time to be a part of college athletics on a national one, and then to be a part of it on a local level.
