  • What They're Saying: Andre Shinyashiki

    "I have a lot of empathy for the guys on the team that have families, they're going to have to leave their families behind. Maybe some guys don't speak the language, maybe they have a kid that's newborn or things like that, so I feel nervous for them, not necessarily for me because I'm young and healthy. I'm not leaving anybody behind here in Denver. It's more about the nervousness of actually getting the virus and how I'm gonna feel. But at the end of the day, there's not another option."
