On a team loaded with talent, 2019 offensive lineman Gavin Chalk is making his own mark, paving the way for an explosive offense.
At 6’2, 275-pounds, Chalk is a physical lineman who takes pride in bringing energy to his team. This past summer, he attended camps at Midwestern State and East Central and says both camps helped prepare him for his senior season.
“I really enjoyed both camps, the coaches really helped me on things that really helped my game,” Chalk says.
Chalk has heard from several Division II programs, including Midwestern State, East Central, Southern Nazarene, and Arkansas Tech.
“East Central and Southern Nazarene has really been more consistent by keeping in contact with me over last summer to now,” he says.
Six Star Football recently caught up with Chalk and asked him about his senior season.

Another is communication and having football IQ on the field, there are times in the games where backers might move around before the ball is snapped and it’s the o-lines job is to communicate and do our job
