What Does Commando Football Mean To You: COMMANDO football means everything to me. I've learned so much from all the coaches, they teach everything you need to know about being a man and a good person. I wouldn't be the person I am today without COMMANDO football.

Chad was a player in the program for all 4 years.  He was a big, physical kid who drew starts on both sides of the ball in all 3 years that he played on the varsity team.  Had an excellent career at Tight End and Defensive End being productive on both sides of the ball in each of the last 3 seasons.  He also did a great job playing on several Special Teams units, and was named 1st Team ‘All-County’ following both his Junior and Senior seasons.  On offense, his ability to be a great blocker as well as a great receiver made him an exceptional Tight End.  He ended his career with 30 receptions for 403 yards and 5 touchdown catches which is one of the top receiving careers for Tight Ends in HHS history.  On the defensive side of the ball, he had 133 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 safety, 23 QB pressures, 14 tackles for loss, 1 interception, 4 pass knock downs, 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 1 blocked extra point.  His ability to make plays in every aspect of the game will be hard for the COMMANDOS to replace.

2010-Had an excellent sophomore season for the COMMANDOS.  Ended up being a starter on defense, and an important member of the Tight End rotation on offense.  Had 42 tackles, 1 receiving touchdown, 3 tackles for loss, 1 safety, 2 sacks, 5 QB hurries, 1 pass break-up, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery during 2010 campaign.  Had a season high 6 tackles including 1 sack and 1 forced fumble in the 5A State Championship game versus Columbia, and recorded at least 1 tackle in 14 of the teams 15 games.  Scored the first points of the Hunters Lane game as his tackle for loss gave HHS a 2-0 lead with the safety, also had 5 tackles and 1 sack in that game.  Recorded QB hurries in games against LaVergne, Station Camp, and Gallatin.  Had a season best 2 hurries in the playoff game versus Gallatin.  Chad recorded both a pass break-up as well as a fumble recovery versus Portland.  Recorded 1 catch that went for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Station Camp game.
