The Davidson County Player of the Week for our second week of play is MBA senior running back, and University of Tennessee commit, Ty Chandler.
The Big Red took on Pearl-Cohn this past week at home. Like many other games across the mid-state, this one was affected by the weather, but no amount of lightning could slow down Chandler who scored 3 touchdowns, and rushed for 148 yards, in the first half alone. All 49 of MBA’s points came before halftime. During the second half of the game, Chandler’s fun was stopped short, as the game was called due to lightning.
It was just a couple weeks ago that Ty Chandler decided he was going to pursue his college football career at Tennessee. You can check out more about that and see our interview with him here: https://tnhighschoolfootball.com/ty-chandler-says-yes-to-the-vols/
This will not be the last time we hear from this star-powered running back, as the MBA Big Red are one of the favorites to win the Division II-AA State Championship. Ty Chandler looks to lead this team again this Friday against Melrose High School.
