CHANDLER DANIEL

Yough's Chandler Daniel got the one he wanted and pounced.

The 6-foot-4, 260-pound tackle/defensive end verbally committed to play for Duquesne this past week, cashing in on his lone scholarship offer.

“It's a good fit for me,” Daniel said.

A right tackle, Daniel helped Yough (6-5) average nearly 200 rushing yards per game. Despite missing a game and a half with a slight tear in his left MCL, he posted 24 solo tackles, 18 assists and four sacks at defensive end.

This from a kid who couldn't bench press 135 pounds as a sophomore first-year player.

His max now is 335, though the former basketball player isn't all muscle.

“He has tremendous feet for a big guy,” Yough coach Mark Crovak said. “He can move.”

Daniel has a 3.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale. He's a member of Yough's student council, works as a senior mentor and will study athletic training.

“It's where I want to go,” Daniel said. “I'm going for athletic training, and when it comes down to it, I have to consider my education as well.”
