CHATTANOOGA — Some of the top college football programs in the country have been recruiting Montgomery Bell Academy running back Ty Chandler.
He proved his worthiness in MBA’s 33-27 overtime victory at McCallie on Friday night. The top-ranked Big Red defeated the Blue Tornado for the third straight time, including the quarterfinals of the Division II-AA playoffs last fall.
Chandler rushed 41 times for 270 yards and scored four touchdowns, including the tying score late in regulation and the winning score in overtime.
“He’s never rushed it that many times,” MBA coach Marty Euverard said. “He wanted it. He kept telling the backups to stay on the sideline.”
