In an article from ESPN, Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard shared his thoughts about the changes that have happened around college football.

“It was kind of a shock. It shuts down pretty much the entire world.” said Hubbard “We all had plans for spring break. For everything to get canceled, you’re like, ‘OK, that’s not too bad.’ And then school gets canceled and spring ball and all that stuff, you’re like, ‘Damn, this is serious.’ It was eye-opening.” {ESPN}

One of the things Hubbard spent his time in quarantine working on was his nonprofit Your Choice, Your Life. He said this organization will work with kids in negative environments and try to bring some positive influences into their lives.

Hubbard told ESPN:

“The other aspect is to help families that are on welfare, help parents find jobs, help kids get an education. I’ll start up local, but I hope we one day can be international, where I can help kids all across the world. Just growing up, my family had its struggles, but I was really lucky, I had a lot of support around me. Without those people, I wouldn’t be where I am. I want to be that for kids that don’t have what I had.

During the quarantine period, Hubbard said he spent some time in Los Angeles, then went to Baltimore when things got bad in California, All while keeping up with what is going on in Canada where his family and a lot of his friends live.
