Chalich, Watson To Become Vandals

Chad Chalich and Deon Watkins (shown above during 2011 season), the pass-catch team that led the Coeur d'Alene Vikings to their second straight Idaho high school football title last fall, have signed letters of intent, as expected, to play for the University of Idaho Vandals. You can see who else Coach Robb Akey signed here.

  • Akey on Chalich: "Chad’s a winner. He’s a great competitor. He’s a two-time state champion quarterback. We’re very excited to have the best quarterback in the state of Idaho in our football program. We’re very excited about his future."
  • Akey on Watson: “Deon is a tremendous athlete. We recruited him as an athlete – he can play tight end or defensive end. We’re going to see what spot fits him best. He’s going to be able to play basketball, too. His daddy (Deon) was a tremendous basketball player here.”
  • Akey comments on all recruits here.

Question: Are you looking forward to rooting for two former Viks on UI Vandal football team?
