Benched Ep. 7: NFHS COO Davis Whitfield: Coronavirus is a serious situation for high school sports

Davis Whitfield was the commissioner of the N.C. High School Athletic Association for five years and now works at the NFHS office in Indianapolis as the Chief Operating Officer. He joined Nick Stevens on the podcast to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic to high school sports nationally, and explains why he thinks the NCHSAA is in a better position than most other states to weather the storm. Davis also talks about some issues the NCAA will face with initial eligibility, and he touches on the cancelation of the ACC Tournament -- an event he was heavily involved with before moving to the NCHSAA.
