Chase Lanning Marist OL Class Of 2024 6'4 285
Chase Lanning how is your summer going so far? Going very well, two College camps already done. Purdue and EIU and now Northwestern Tomorrow. I’ve been going through personal training work for my form and techniques. OL Mafia and I’ve been getting my name out there more. What does football mean to you? Football is my second life outside of my academics. After all I am a STUDENT athlete. It makes me happy to see Football practice on my schedule and would play it all year round if I could. I love the brotherhood of the Offensive line. I love the brotherhood in the team. And if I am unable to play Football in college then I will be crushed. For Football drives my life and happiness.
What should college coaches know about you? I feel that they should know that I bring a lot to a football team including leadership, good attitude, and a high work ethic. But more so that I bring a lot to the college as a whole. Through my love for playing instruments such as the Piano, Guitar, and Saxophone. Or my love for art. But that I thoroughly enjoy academics and supporting my school on and off the field. The main takeaway that college coaches should take from me is that I’ll never be the biggest on the field but I outwork everyone on that team 10 fold. What do you like about playing in the trenches? I don’t like it. I absolutely love it! Yes, I’ll never make a game winning catch. But taking a guy who thinks he can beat me and throwing him in the dirt never gets old. Being 5 guys working as one is something that can’t be explained to someone who has never been there before. It’s my favorite part of any practice and the best part of games. The anticipation of looking across the line of scrimmage and seeing the man you are going to manhandle, and pancake is a feeling I’ll never get tired of. So basically, I am in love with the trenches, and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? My strongest trait on the field is my aggression and picking up my fellow teammates. I never push blame on anyone else. I am a hype man on and off the field and love to see my teammates succeed. Because at the end of the day the team is 1. Secondly my work ethic and my willingness to go the extra mile on and off the field. Whether or not that is staying after practice to get some extra work in. Or coming before practice to get some extra work. How was your rugby season? Went well, 20+ tackles 7 scores and marking me as a 3 year Varsity starter. Lost in the first round of playoffs but I believe next year we have the team to make a state run. What goals do you have for yourself this season? In football I would like to break the starting lineup and play hard all season. I would like to see the team make a state run and would love to be a part of that.
Who is the funniest lineman on the Marist squad? I’d have to say last year it was Arthur, but this year so far it has been Jacob Pecheco.
