Huddersfield Town midfielder Lewis O’Brien caught up with #HTTV to discuss what he’s been doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sticking with the Government guidelines, Lewis has been utilising his time wisely to get outside and keep active, going over and above the fitness work set by Huddersfield Town.

The young midfielder would urge all supporters to get outside for a walk, cycle or run during this time just for their own mental well-being.

“I’ve just been doing what Huddersfield Town have given me for the fitness programmes.

“I’ve borrowed a bike with my girlfriend, so going on bike rides, walking the dog and stuff. Just getting out the house whenever I can has helped keep my mind sane.

“If I didn’t have the dog, I think I’d be very bored. I wouldn’t go out as much as I do and would probably be sat on my PlayStation. It’s good to get out and be active.”

Lewis also jumped on the Tik Tok hype a few weeks after the lockdown guidelines were introduced.

He followed in the footsteps of left-back Harry Toffolo and gave us a taste of their friendship off the pitch.

“The boredom hit quite hard at one point. I think Toffs started it at first, so I had to get him back. He knew it would be something that I loved, so the videos started. I’ve taken a back seat now.

“They are actually quite good to be fair and took a while to get right, a lot of takes, but it was good.

“As soon as I saw Toffs’ first Tik Tok, I knew I had to do one myself. It seems to be working with the fans as well, as they seem to be challenging me and Toffs to do things ourselves.

“It’s good that we can get interactive with fans and keep things going.”

In his spare time, Lewis has been keen to help the Club’s Academy players, going on video calls to answer the Young Terriers’ questions and to give them advice.

“Worthy and Brombs hosted individual video meetings for the Academy players. I dropped in on the midfielders and Tommy Elphick spoke to the defenders.

“For me to be in the meeting was a massive thing. To get asked to be in one of those meetings, from where I’ve come from through the Academy, is massive.

“On the other hand, it’s a big thing because they can look at me as a pathway because I’ve come from the Academy.

“Being present in the meeting was a massive thing for them because they got to ask me questions about my time in the Academy and stepping into the First Team. I think it helped them a lot.”
