J.C. Chalk has settled in nicely with the powerhouse Clemson football program and now has high hopes of capping this season with his second national title since arriving there in 2016.
According to the ESPN, the 6-foot-3, 250-pound tight end has caught two passes in each of the last two seasons, but for the Argyle High grad it was never about stats.
“I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” Chalk told The Clemson Insider of his experience in Death Valley, which includes a 2016 redshirt season. “I’ve been able to learn a lot and just continue to mature football-wise.”
Clemson faces Alabama in the national championship game on Jan. 7 and the whole magical atmosphere strikes Chalk as familiar territory.
In addition to winning a title with the Tigers in 2016, he won a Texas Division 4A-1 chip with Argyle and another with the school as a junior on the basketball team.
In all, Chalk caught 91 passes for 1,031 yards and 14 touchdowns over his Argyle career, turning enough heads to land him at Clemson, where his run-blocking ability and overall versatility have come to be much counted on.
