The countless accolades only tell part of the story though – Chase also got married, had a beautiful son, and has relentlessly pursued reaching peak life performance. Only in more recent years has he come to understand and prioritize balance. Though sports can teach many of life’s lessons, Chase gained clarity and a greater sense of purpose after discovering this new-found balance. His role as a husband, father, and friend helps him go beyond the physicality of his beloved profession by bringing joy spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
It was an honor to coach Chase and get to play a part in the development of such a great man. His outlook on life is one we can all learn from, and I can confidently say we have yet to see the best of what Chase Daniel will bring to this world. I eagerly await his future seasons in the NFL as well as his future life endeavors.
