Thanks to Chachere, throwing against SJSU will be a dicey proposition in 2017.
San Jose State had a rough 2016, especially when it came to defending against the pass, but the Spartans are a good bet to rebound and be as tough as they were in the few years before last fall. If you’re asking yourself why this might be the case, the next athlete on our list is a significant answer.
Cornerback Andre Chachere shined in his second year as a starter, defending a conference-best 14 passes, grabbing four interceptions and forcing two fumbles for good measure. Last month, he was selected as a preseason all-conference defender both by our staff and by the Mountain West media at large, giving the Spartans a strong piece to build around as they regroup under first-year head coach Brent Brennan.
