Chase Brous wanted to play baseball past high school when he was younger. However, the more he played football in high school he realized his future might be on the grid iron. Thursday at the high school cafeteria, Brous signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the McPherson College Bulldogs.
Brous received interest from McPherson College during his junior season but was worried if the interest was still there following a coaching change at the college. Following a series of conversations with new Bulldogs coach Jeremiah Fiscus and conversations between Fiscus and Indians’ coach Tony Crough, Brous landed a college to play at.
Brous plans on majoring in elementary education while attending college. The former defensive lineman for the Indians has hitting the weight room and gaining weight at the top of his priority list before heading off for fall camp. Coach Tony Crough has already seen the difference in Brous noting that he has put on around 25 pounds since the end of football. Crough believes one of the top football qualities that helped Brous reach the collegiate level is his tenacity on the field.
Crough also pointed out that Brous was everything that a first year head coach could want in a player and a senior leader.

In a two year varsity career Brous compiled 72 total tackles, five for loss, two sacks, caused one fumble and recovered four more. He was named to the second All-Western Athletic Conference defense this past season.
