Coaches Comments: Chris is a physical player that continues to get stronger with his work ethic in the weight room. After making the transition to the line on offense, he became an all-star at guard because of his hard-nosed mentality and physicality. He had a big year at defensive end in putting pressure on the opponent’s backfield but will likely transition to middle linebacker to fill graduation needs.
