Name: Chase Stamatis
Hometown: Cleveland, Missouri
High School: Christ Prep Academy
Position: Wide Receiver
Major: Undecided 
Coach Lira: Chase is a big time receiver, that was recruited by numerous colleges. Chase is such a dynamic receiver because he is a guy that can high point any ball an win majority of the time, he is a guy that can run by you and make big plays, or if he needs to he can lower his shoulder an run through you. Most importantly, he is a young man that pursues Christ in everything he does! I'm excited to see what he does with his time here at Greenville.

Why did He Choose Greenville: I chose Greenville because, it felt like it was the best choice to take my life to bigger and better opportunities.
