Ty Chandler reflects on illustrious MBA career

Turning in the helmets and pads for the final time is tough on high-school football players. Future Tennessee Volunteer Ty Chandler remarked on going from one life phase to another.

Ty Chandler's set to kick off another stage in his life as a student-athlete following the end of an illustrious prep career in Nashville.

After leading Montgomery Bell Academy to a TSSAA Division II Class AA state championship as a sophomore, Chandler and his teammates finished runner-up to Brentwood Academy each of the last two seasons, including a 42-38 loss on Dec. 1 at Tucker Stadium in Cookeville.

The Big Red senior said he hopes he's remembered at the Nashville private school as "someone that had great character, humble, was able to do great things on and off the field. I loved my time here on The Hill. I respect everyone I played with. I had a great time, and I'm grateful for it."

In the finale, Chandler had 31 carries for 218 yards and three touchdowns (55, 2, 4).

The next time the future Tennessee Volunteer running back straps up it will be for practices leading up to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Kickoff at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, is Jan. 7 at noon Central.
