Krivashei all about winning

Translate

Lumberjacks football star, Chase Krivashei is going to break the Lumberjacks all-time record for receptions this season, but don’t tell him that. He has his mind set on one thing. Winning.

The Corona, California product has been rewriting the record books here at HSU and that was a goal in the beginning.

“The recruiting process was really tough for me,” Krivashei said. “Almost my whole high school career, I was told I was gonna go D-1 and when I ended up going Division 2, I just told myself I’m going to be the best player I can be at that school and just try to break every record possible.”

Krivashei plays slot receiver, which means he is constantly asked to go over the middle for catches in traffic, which exposes him to the hardest hits in the game, but at only 5’9”, Krivashei’s small stature has never been an excuse for him in a game played with giants.

“I try to use it to my advantage in certain situations,” Krivashei said. “Some guys if they’re a little bit taller, they cant get into certain areas as easy or they get hit easier.”

Krivashei’s athletic ability isn’t his only contribution to the team. He has shown his grit by coming back strong this season after a season ending injury a year ago and he’s a natural born leader on and off the field. Jacks receivers coach, Nick Williams appreciates everything Krivashei brings to the table.

“The special thing about Chase is his presence. It’s not just about football,” Williams said. “It’s about being around the guys on and off the field. Just having him around makes everyone around him better, it makes all of us better.”

Krivashei holds the records at HSU for receptions in a game (18) and for a season (96) and as of now, right before the Jacks big game at Azusa Pacific University, he is a mere 38 receptions away from the all-time career mark.

“I broke a couple records already,” Krivashei said. “I’m not too worried about breaking anymore. You’ll remember winning more than you’ll remember breaking records.”
