This ongoing photo series examines the ways the coronavirus pandemic has upended and reshaped athletes' lives.
Louis Cheneau Jr. thought his dreams of playing college football might be over when he suffered two knee injuries before the end of his senior season at Riverside Academy in Reserve, Louisiana. The 5-foot-8, 205-pound running back was able to keep his financial aid at Division III Louisiana College, but a long rehab and inexperience left him on the sideline as a freshman in 2019. He worked all winter to get into shape for his first spring practice season this March, only to see the opportunity end after three practices because of the COVID-19 outbreak. He returned home to LaPlace, Louisiana, to again train for a football season he can't be sure will happen.
