It was the middle of March 2020, and the Mississippi State staff gathered for what was supposed to be a meeting about the beginning of the second half of spring ball following their weeklong break. But, because it was the middle of March 2020, the meeting turned out to be about anything but spring football.

The university was shutting down, the late Mike Leach told his staff, and the coaches and players were being released to go their separate ways for indefinite amount of time. “If there was ever something you wanted to do but never had the time to do it,” now’s going to be your time,” Leach said.

Leach uttered that piece of advice to a room full of people, but he was speaking to one defensive quality control coach in particular.
