It’s not every day that you have a girl play on your high school football team, but then again, Madison Chandler is not your average girl. After approaching Rosecrans head coach Jay Campbell, Chandler joined the team after week one.
The Bishops have been shorthanded all season with around 20 players on their roster. Needless to say, Maddie, as they call her, was a welcome addition, especially with her athletic skill set.
Chandler also plays basketball and runs track for the Bishops, but has always loved playing football. She’s played the game since the first grade, and is gradually getting back into the groove.She plays both wide receiver and outside linebacker for Coach Campbell.
She will have plenty more opportunities to help the Bishops this season. Rosecrans will try to earn their first win of the year Friday against Coshocton on the road.
