#76 Chase Petersen
Class: RSFreshman Ht/Wt: 6-4/295 Position: Offensive Line Hometown: Bentonville, Ark
Louisville’s Take: Played for Barry Lunney, Sr. at Bentonville High School... anchored an offensive line which averaged over 38 points and over 427 yards as a senior and led the way for multiple 1000 yard rushers in each year... honored as Arkansas 7A All-State OL and Associated Press All- Arkansas Team as a senior
Thoughts: I haven’t seen Chase play one second of Division I college football, and neither has anyone else for that matter. His resume is impressive, making the all-state squad Senior year as well as not allowing a sack that year or his Junior year. Chase had minor shoulder surgery before coming to Louisville and then started last year with some knee issues. Hopefully he can remain healthy as he starts to get more and more game action. We already touched on the depth of the O-line and I think Chase will have to do some work to get significant PT this season. Look for Petersen to make an impact in the next couple years.
Potential Nicknames: "C-Pizzle". "Crispy" (You know, since he's Chris P. See what I did there?)
