“I chose Chadron because the education is cheap and really affordable, and I also chose football because the coaches showed me a lot of hospitality and showed me my options,” said Barreras.

I am happy to say that with @ Danielb1227 I will continue my education and football path in the state of Chadron. @ micahsmith6 @CoachArgraves
