Playing defense his sophomore year, Chris was given the ball for one play on offense, in the last game of the year and ran 56 yards for a touchdown, which was a forecast of things to come. His junior year was huge. He ran for 1,238 yards in 233 carries for a 5.3 average. Some memorable games were an overtime thriller, 28-27 over Benedictine, coached by the legendary Augie Bossu.

He ran for 212 yards and 3 touchdowns including the winning one with 3 minutes and 25 seconds left for a 21-14 victory over Vermilion. Chris was rewarded for his efforts. He was 1st team All Conference, All County, All District and N. E. District. He was named the Lorain County Player of the year on offense and was named to the 2nd team All-State team on offense and was honored at Cleveland Touchdown Club’s Annual banquet as the Plain Dealer’s Lorain County player of the year.

Chris gained 1,198 yards his senior year despite missing the first three games of the year because of an injury suffered in a pre-season scrimmage.
