The Legacy of MegaChunn

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WSFA) -

Troy senior running back Jordan Chunn is prepping for his final game in the cardinal and white.

“This journey had its ups and downs,” said Chunn. “Just coming from where I came from as a freshman to now being one of the conference champions.”

Chunn has left his impact on the field for the Trojans during his five seasons.

'MegaChunn' as he’s known by the people in Pike County has his name all over the Trojans record book.

“It means a lot just knowing where I came from,” said Chunn. “A lot of hard work put into it has paid off and people have noticed.”

Chunn put up very unfreshman-like numbers during his first season. 14 rushing touchdowns, a Troy record, made him the go-to man going forward until an injury forced him to miss the 2015 season.

“That season right there kind of brought me to an all-time low,” said Chunn. “Just going through the offseason knowing that you were going to be able to play working your tail off and then the second game of the season to a season ending injury.”

A new look 'MegaChunn' emerged for the 2016 season: slimmer, faster and donning a new number.

“38 is a number I wore in high school,” said Chunn. “I got it from Alabama player, Glenn Coffee. 38 is something I just grew up playing in and felt like myself again.”

The last two seasons, Chunn has put up over 2,000 yards with 26 touchdowns and with one game left, Chunn is looking for one last stop in the record book.

“That’s mainly what we’re going on this week is being 1-0 and being one of the top teams to ever come through here and that’s with having 11 wins,” said Chunn.

Chunn will hit the field for the final time as a member of the Trojans on Saturday against North Texas in the New Orleans. Kickoff is at noon.

    With its popularity threatened and critics stretching all the way to the White House, the NFL tries to get past the debate over taking a knee during the national anthem but seems to muddle the issue even more.
