All-State football: McGuinness' Cody Chancellor will be a steal for some college, coaches say

OKLAHOMAN ALL-STATE RECEIVER — At 6-foot-3, Cody Chancellor weighs only 165 pounds, and that fact keeps recruiters from pulling the trigger and offering him a scholarship.

“We threw a lot together over the summer,” Chancellor said. “A lot of our routes, it wasn't about yards, it was about when I was gonna break. And I think by the third or fourth game, we really had that timing down.”

Wherever he ends up next season, he'll continue to be a big-play threat, which is what made him so dangerous this season.

That quality was never on display more than Sept. 28, when Chancellor had 359 receiving yards and four touchdowns on just six receptions in a 42-32 win over eventual Class 5A state champion Carl Albert.

With a cast protecting his broken left hand, it wasn't known until game time just how much Chancellor would be able to play that night.

“That says a lot about who Cody is,” Jones said. “He told us he could play with a broken hand and a cast, just throw him the ball.

“He's able to handle adversity and not make excuses. It doesn't matter. Cody knows as long as he's on the field, he's gonna be able to make plays.”
