By Jayson Henderson

Former Riley County High School alumni Bryce Chavis has joined Emporia State football as the new receivers coach. Chavis previously served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at McPherson College for four years. During his tenure, McPherson’s offense averaged 29.3 points per game over the last three seasons, with Tristan Szabo leading the KCAC in passing last season. Chavis brings experience from the MIAA, having been a graduate assistant at Washburn and a receiver for the Ichabods. A four-year starter at quarterback in high school, Chavis was selected to play in the Kansas Shrine Bowl. Emporia State head coach Garin Higgins expresses excitement for Chavis’s addition, praising his toughness, grit, and passion for player development. Chavis officially commenced his role on March 1 and looks forward to contributing to the team’s success in both spring and fall seasons. The Hornets’ spring practice is slated to commence on March 19, with the Spring and Legends Game scheduled for April 19.
