A View From The Stands :: January 27th, 2009

Chase arrived in El Paso on Sunday morning in advance of the Texas vs. The Nation all star game.  Chase was selected to play on the Texas team and is coached by the legendary Gene Stallings.  The NFL scouts and management personnel are on hand to interview the prospects and also watch them practice.  Lots of hours are set aside for one on one interviews and testing by the NFL teams.  The typical day goes until 10:30 PM.  The game will be this coming Saturday at the Sun Bowl and is televised on CSTV at 1:00 PM MST.  Chase was interviewed by 7 teams yesterday and some of those expressed interest in having him out predraft for a personal workout in front of their coaches and scouting department.

All of these meetings are scheduled in advance of the NFL combine that begins February 18th in Indianapolis and concludes prior to draft day.  We were told ahead of time to prepare for the roller coaster ride that we would experience until April and it has been that and some so far.  Chase will probably return to Atlanta after he completes this game to continue training with Competitive Edge and his QB coach Roger Theeder until somewhere around the third week of February.

Thanks to everyone for all of their support and as always
