Whether it was scorching base hits, launching touchdowns all throughout the fall, or draining threes on the hardwood, San Luis Obispo's Emilio Corona made the most out of his high school career. However, his final season on thje diamond for the Tigers was cut short.

"I was crushed," Corona said. "I felt like this was my year to lead the team, and when I heard it kind of broke my heart. All that work, and I probably won't play a real game until next February. It's Just a long, long time."

During that time, Corona says making sure he is ready to go when it's time to finally compete at the next level, is all the motivation he needs.

"I don't want to be unprepared for when that time comes because that would be the worst thing in the world," Corona added. "I keep myself prepared so I never have to prepare."

Wjile the sports world might be at a standstill, Corona is not. For him, it's all about the future, and making sure he is ready for anything that comes his way.

"Knowing that I'm going to be going to Washington, everyone is going to be the best player from their team," Corona said. "My ultimate goal is to play in the big leagues, and if I'm going to do that, I have to be the best player out there."
