Chico High football player commits

Chico High wide receiver Abe Del Real commits to D-I college

Posted: Dec 23, 2019 6:38 PM

CHICO, Calif. -- Chico High’s Abe Del Real committed to UC Davis. The senior wide receiver landed offers from Davis, the University of San Diego and Stetson University after helping lead his team to back-to-back league titles.

“It’s a huge relief. It’s something I’ve been working toward for over a year now consistently and to see it all finally pay off, it’s truly a blessing,” said Del Real. “I’m thankful to be in this position and do something so huge.”

The 6’3 senior made a huge impact on his Chico High football team this year with twelve touchdowns in ten games, according to MaxPreps.com. But the work didn’t start there for Del Real.

“In the summer I went to over ten football camps, almost every other day, at one point going around traveling around California, Oregon, some other states, really just grinding for this opportunity,” said Real.

“A day off is a day wasted.”

This 4.02 student-athlete plans on majoring in managerial economics major. He believes what he learns in the classroom is more important than what he accomplishes on the gridiron.

“It’s super important,” said Del Real. “Football is always going to be there, but you got to look at the bigger picture. The steps after football, that’s why grades and school really come in key because that builds work ethic, character, and that will help you really succeed in life.”

Athletics, academics, and character are all lessons learned from Chico High and his team.

“They’ve helped me in every way possible. I can’t thank any of those guys enough, especially the coaches, the players. For four years they’ve just been by my side, encouraging me, supporting me, pushing me to become the person I am now and the person I will continue to be.”

Del Real says he will continue to play soccer for Chico High and head to UC Davis after graduation in Jun
