"I'm not a guy who screams and yells, I lead more by example, but when something needs to be said I will say it, and I love it," said Maday.
For Chayce Maday, being a leader is something he's used to.
The Cardinals senior quarterback has played varsity football since the 10th grade, and it's something that's definitely respected.
"The way he commands the huddle, the way he understand the play package and kind've coaches the other guys, in many cases, it's like having another coach on the field," said John Studer.
Acoach on the field who's led Corning to a 6-2 record this season, with wins over Willows, Orland and Lassen so far. With this being his last year in the black and red, chayce is making sure to cherish his time as a Cardinal.
"Walking on the field with those birds on your helmet every night, it just gives you the chills and I love my team," said Maday.
But this season won't just be Chayce's last on the gridiron, as he also suits for the cardinals basketball team and runs track. He's a natural athlete who adjusts quickly.
"I don't think there's a lot of stuff that he can't do. I've played golf with him once and it's amazing how much better he got in a matter of 3 or 4 holes. On top of that he's also an outstanding student and a really good person," said Maday.
Education is something that Chayce takes seriously, as he currently holds a 3.85 GPA. He says when he isn't preparing for Friday nights, he's preparing for the future.
"Being a good student means a lot, it obviously helps with your future with college and it makes you feel good about yourself," said Maday.
A good student-athlete who's making his parents, peers and coaches proud.
