In a recent episode of the Michigan football team’s In the Trenches podcast, rising redshirt junior linebacker Josh Ross broke down his return from injury, Michigan’s return to practice, the Wolverines’ defense, 2020 season and more. Read what he had to say below.
On how things have been in the pandemic
Things are going great man. I mean, these past four months have been like the craziest of my life as far as everything that’s going on. But we’re getting more comfortable in our workouts as far as doing everything we’re supposed do do. Everything’s going really well.
On Michigan shutting down spring practices
Yeah. So the way it happened was that we were doing our workout. A workout specifically right before spring was started. The way it popped off was it was kind of like a surprise. One day we came in for the workout, spring ball was supposed to start in like four days, we came in and basically Harbaugh pulled us up and he was like ‘Because of this corona, we have to cancel this workout today and we’re going to try to start spring ball this weekend,’ and then it ended up not happening. It was just so fast and so sudden. Crazy. But going through quarantine and everything, it was definitely weird at first just being at home you know, going through your workouts but also having so much time on your hands. I’m not used to that. But as I settled in, I kind of, you know, developed a plan throughout the day. I go do my workout, make sure I’m eating the right breakfast, lunch and dinner, make sure I’m eating my snacks in between. And everything worked out. I grew through quarantine, as a man.
On how he has grown in quarantine
So, kind of the way my days kind of went it was already … we had come in at this time and got to do this type of thing I got to sign up at this time. In quarantine, we still have classes online but it was more about me. Like, the first couple weeks were a little weird, but it was more about me, developing a rhythm, developing a schedule every single day. You know, making sure my house is clean, doing all these little minuscule details. You know, like growing as a man.
