Banged Up Chester Does Enough for a Rattler Win

To the hill, where the FAMU Rattlers played their last home game in over a month. They were also looking to get out of an 0-2 hole, something senior quarterback Albert Chester was able to do last year, but this year, the Florida Classic hero is a little banged up with shoulder woes, and it has shown in his past performances.

Fortunately for the Rattlers, on Saturday, Chester was golden; he threw for 180 yards on 15 of 22 passing, and even with a bum elbow, he was mobile as ever, rushing for 47 yards on 13 attempts including a two-yard touchdown.

"Just glad to get the monkey off my back, I'm still battling nerve damage in my elbow, but trying to compete out there and win, they kept telling me to slide... I broke my ankle in baseball when I was 14 by sliding, so I don't like to slide, but I think I might have found out how," says the senior quarterback.
