Chad Peevey is a senior sport management major from Bryan/College Station. Peevey went to St. Joseph’s High School.
He was voted to the Beyond Sports network Preseason All-America squad. He was named to the Third Team as Punter.
Outside of football, Peevey enjoys spending time with his friends.
“I like to hang out with the guys, cook, play washers and golf,”
Peevey’s favorite thing about football is being with his teammates, on and off the field, as well as winning.
Peevey has pre-game rituals before every contest.
“On away games, we all go to the movies. Tim and I get a large popcorn and large drink before every movie. We do it every game. On home games, I do a little jog in the morning before the game,” he said.
Peevey is the primary punter and kickoff specialist this season, but he has been responsible for all of the kicking duties in past years.
Recently he was awarded American Southwest Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance against Louisana College. Peevey kicked a school-record 79-yard punt. He is averaging 37.1 yards per punt, which leads all other punters in the ASC.
His dream job is to one day take his game to the big league.
“Playing pro, playing at the next level, punting the football and kicking it, that would be nice,” he said.
The Crusaders will not only be missing one of the best kickers in Division III when his eligibility runs out next season.
They will also be missing a tremendous leader on and off the field.
