SFA Lumberjacks — Charlie Daneils

John Krueger/The Daily Sentinel

Senior Charlie Daniels (12), shown here going up strong to the basket during a 2019-20 game with the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, will be one of eight returners to the squad for the upcoming season.

On the eve of their first official practice of the fall, the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjack basketball program was temporarily shut down due to a staff member testing positive to COVID-19 this week.

As a precautionary measure, the opening of preseason practices, which was to begin on Wednesday, was delayed for several days to make sure the infection doesn’t spread.
