Many Division I athletic departments are announcing now they will be getting their fall sports athletes on campus in the coming weeks as they prepare for the upcoming sports season.
However, in central Illinois, D-III ADs say they are concerned if their student-athletes are unable to return to campus for sports in the fall, they may not come back to school at all. Mark Wagner is the athletic director at Illinois Wesleyan University in Normal, Illinois and hopes a lot of their athletes would see the bigger picture beyond being able to or not being able to compete in sports.

Wagner is confident fall sports will happen, but it will likely have a different feel than normal. He is also monitoring how other states handle their returns to campus for their athletes.
