Last week was a rewarding week for Huntingdon senior D.J. Chappell.
The defensive tackle began the week by becoming the first Huntingdon football player to earn first-team All-America honors from the American Football Coaches Association. On Friday night, he was named first-team All-American by D3football.com.
“Anytime you receive recognition like this, it’s a great accomplishment,” Chappell said. “It feels good when your hard work is recognized. But like I’ve said before, it’s also a recognition of my teammates and the kind of players I’ve been fortunate to play with.”
Chappell, a two-time first-team All-South Region selection, was named honorable mention All-American by D3football.com in 2011.
