It’s been a busy summer for Brelan Chancellor, member of the class of CCHS 2010.
Not only has he returned home to Copperas Cove to coach the very team he played for while at CCHS, he is being recognized by his college alma mater, the University of North Texas “Mean Green.”
In his time at the University of North Texas, Chancellor had 324 rushing yards, 1,711 receiving yards, 3,468 return yards, 5,503 all-purpose yards and a total of 20 touchdowns, before a brief stint with the San Diego Chargers.
Just this past week, Chancellor was informed that his alma mater is inducting him into their Hall of Fame.
Chancellor talked about how he’s processing everything since the news broke.
“It’s the same cloud-9 feeling as when we won the 2014 Heart of Dallas Bowl against UNLV (36-14), just full of emotions,” Chancellor said. “Before that game, we set individual goals and goals as a team to make sure we played our absolute best game ever. It has made me think back to all the people who helped me along the way and getting the stamp of approval.”
When asked about his fondest memories at the University of North Texas, the Heart of Texas Bowl game came up again.
“We came into that game and said how we wanted to change the way North Texas is remembered and did exactly that. The group of men we had that year was a special group of men and we all worked as hard as we could to get to that moment, we will all be brothers forever.” added Chancellor.

Carlos Harris was one of a handful of guys who was still giving everything he had during those lean years. He was virtually the only guy making any plays at all on that 2014 team (and outside of freshman phenom Jeff Wilson, the 2015 team as well).
Hot-headed, eccentric, sure! But we shouldn’t rewrite history to make it sound like he was a bum.
The same bunch of unethical coaches who go behind other schools backs and contacts their players while they are on scholarship with that school are going to Patrol themselves? I don't know which is more laughable the NCAA leadership or the school presidents.
