Chad President’s value to the University of Tulsa football program never seems to end.
Even with the redshirt junior quarterback sidelined for much of 2018 recovering from a torn ACL, the former Temple High star has found a way to help keep things running smoothly for the Golden Hurricanes.
For much of the season, President has played the role of signaling-in plays on offense for coach Phillip Montgomery, according to the Tulsa World. It’s all added to his legendary reputation as the ultimate teammate.
“Chad’s probably one of the best leaders we’ve got on the football team,” Montgomery later told the newspaper. “He brings a lot on the field, but as far as being able to talk, communicate and encourage, he’s one of those guys that (has done) a tremendous job with that.”
When healthy, Candidate, a dual-threat, four-star recruit coming out of Temple, has proven to be just as valuable for the Golden Hurricanes.
In 2017, he threw for 921 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 429, including a pair of 100-yard rushing games, to go with nine scores.
President, who hopes to coach someday, is aiming for a 2019 return to the field for Tulsa.
