Lone Peak Athlete Receiving Some Interest

Lone Peak High School athlete Quade Chappuis plays multiple positions for the Knights' football team. He is also on the radar of both BYU and the University of Utah, but has yet to receive a coveted scholarship offer.

Heading into the summer, Quade Chappuis is hoping to receive a scholarship offer so he can continue playing the sport he loves. The 6-foot, 185-pound senior-to-be from Lone Peak High School has become their utility man, as he plays both offense and defense.

"I ran a 4.7 forty last summer and squat 295," said Chappuis. "I clean 215 and bench 240. I play running back and like it because I like to make people look stupid. I like play wide receiver as well because I like to score touchdowns and burn kids deep. Those are some of the reasons why I like playing those two positions."

Chappuis plays in the secondary for Lone Peak as well.

"I also play cornerback and safety," he said. "I like to play safety because I like to come up and make hits, but what I like about playing corner is being able to play man and shut down receivers. It's pretty fun, I think."

Chappuis has yet to receive a scholarship offer, but he is receiving letters and interest from colleges both in and out of Utah.

"I receive letters from Utah, Army, Oregon, Utah State, Air Force and BYU," said Chappuis.

Chappuis said the University of Utah is showing him the most interest.

"[The Utes] send me lots of letters and tell me to come up," said Chappuis. "I've been up to their Junior Day and I liked it a lot. I like their coaches and like the atmosphere of it."

To further advance his chances of catching the eyes of a college coach and possibly receiving a scholarship offer, Chappuis is planning on heading out to a few summer camps.

"I'm going to the All-Poly Camp and to Utah and BYU," said Chappuis. "I'm also going to try and squeeze in Boise State."

Although he plays multiple positions for his high school team, Chappuis plans on showcasing his talents on the defensive side of the ball when he attends these summer camps.

"I'm thinking of playing either cornerback or safety," Chappuis said. "I'm going to play on the defensive side of the ball for sure though, but I'm not sure what I'll be playing this year for my high school team though. We just got a new coach, but I'm thinking I'll probably play mostly safety."

Chappuis is an LDS kid and does have mission plans in his future. Total Blue Sports will keep an eye on any recruiting developments of his.
