College soccer has kicked back off – sort of. Not everyone is back in action, with some schools returning to play later in the month or even in March. For those that have re-started, there have been a few games cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19 or in the case of Alabama A&M, their exhibition against crosstown rivals University of Alabama – Huntsville was moved up a day due to anticipated inclement weather. But there were games played, and while not everyone got to get some minutes, the college soccer season is more of a sprint than a grind and opportunities will arise.
