“We are very proud of Chandler,” said Anderson head coach Jason Taylor in the league’s announcement. This is a great accomplishment and the honor is very well deserved. Chandler embodies everything you want a student-athlete to be. He is a very good basketball player, an excellent student and is selfless with his time to serve others.”
