Elijah Lufile is a redshirt sophomore for the Oral Robert's men's basketball team.

This past season, he averaged six points and five rebounds in 15 minutes per game in his first year with the Golden Eagles.

The Ontario, Canada native planned to stay on campus to train for the 2020-21 season until it was evacuated two weeks ago due to a confirmed report of the coronavirus on campus.

While back home in his native Canada, Lufile has been using his second talent to help relax and calm down during the stressful times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Jacob Tobey has the story.
