LAS VEGAS –
Chase Lucas will get to play with many of his Sun Devil brothers one more time at Thursday’s East-West Shrine Bowl. The defensive back set the program record for most starts in the maroon and gold, and he was the voice of the team in good times and in bad.
This isn’t a new thing for Lucas, either. He promised his then-high school head coach Shaun Aguano the first Chandler football state title in over 50 years before even taking a snap. He delivered on that promise.
He vowed to represent the state well with his best friend N’Keal Harry while playing for the Sun Devils. He did that, and helped turn around one of the worst pass defenses in the country into a top-20 unit in just a few years.
In many ways, we’ve seen Chase Lucas grow up in front of our eyes at Chandler and ASU. So before his last college game, I wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and relive some classic moments during his time in Arizona.
