Former Harrison High School and Bowling Green State University football player Chris Scheidt still is involved in the sport as a wide receivers’ coach at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Ind.
Scheidt was a three-sport athlete at Harrison, graduating in 2007. He started out as a walk-on at Bowling Green, and eventually earned a scholarship, playing all four seasons as a wide receiverfor the Falcons.
After earning his college degree from Bowling Green in sports marketing, Scheidt spent one season as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Cincinnati.
He moved to Rose-Hulman this season as a wide receivers coach, and helped the Engineers achieve a 7-3 record, earning them a tie for first place in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. Because Rose-Hulman lost to co-champion Franklin College, Franklin earned the conference’s spot in the NCAA Division III playoffs.
Scheidt also is studying for his master’s degree at Indiana State University, which also is located in Terre Haute.
