@UVAFootball linebacker Charles Snowden has been busy spearheading a variety of campaigns to show appreciation for the frontline workers of the COVID-19 battle. He launched the #HoosYourHero project, which is detailed in this UVA Today article. Yesterday, he launched this video that features some very prominent UVA alums from a variety of sports, including Chris Long, Ryan Zimmerman and World Cup champions Morgan Brian and Danielle Colaprico. UVA president Jim Ryan also had one of the opening messages in the piece. Give it a watch above to see who else is sharing their appreciation of healthcare professionals.

Tyler Wilson picked up the win on Tuesday in his start for the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball League. Congrats, Tyler. However, what we really want to share about this is the very creative solution that the KBL has come up with for playing games without fans, especially since the games are broadcast worldwide (showing up on the ESPN family of networks here in the states. The solution is quite evident in the clip above, as is the pitching prowess of the Cavalier alum.
@Home w/ The Hoos
It was a double dip on yesterday’s episode of @Home w/ the Hoos as Dave Koehn did the virtual drop-in on Heather Quella and Heidi Horton, or as they are better known to Hoo fans, The Burge Twins. Dave asks them about their playing days, why they chose UVA and the question everyone wants to hear the answer to, their thoughts on Double Teamed, the classic Disney movie based on their lives.
