#1 hether or not Id still ever play the position, Hanse von dasg234 25.06.2018 15:37

SALT LAKE CITY -- Chase Hansen was considered the quarterback of the future when he arrived at Utah in 2012, but circumstances pushed him to safety last season. What was thought to be a temporary move has become a full-time job as the No. 24 Utes now have one of the budding young safeties in the Pac-12.Hes playing as good as any safety in the conference, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. Hes all over the place. Hes a big-play guy. Hes stripping the ball, hes recovering fumbles. Hes doing a great job in coverage. Hes physical. Hes a great tackler. Hes exceeding my expectations.I believed he was going to be very good. But I didnt know hed be this good this quickly.The redshirt sophomore made the switch last midseason as the 6-foot-3, 212-pound dual-threat quarterback was wasting away behind Travis Wilson and Kendal Thompson. Whittingham insisted the move was temporary, but Hansen played well and was promoted to starter against Washington, where he had a career-high 11 tackles, a forced fumble and a pass breakup before a lower leg injury ended his season.Hansen had a decision during the offseason -- stay at safety or go try to win the quarterback job. With former Washington quarterback Troy Williams transferring in and 2015 Florida Gatorade Football Player of the Year Tyler Huntley signing, Hansen believed he would help more at safety. Additionally, he enjoyed playing defense.When I was in high school, even when I was at quarterback, I loved to run, I loved to run hard, said Hansen, who served a two-year Mormon mission in Australia. I loved the contact. It just feels more like football to me.Theres something therapeutic about hitting people really hard and kind of going crazy out on a football field.The Utes host Arizona on Saturday and Hansen enters as the No. 3 tackler on the team with 26. He also has 1.5 tackles for loss, a fumble forced, a fumble recovered and a pass breakup. Hansen is still learning the intricacies of the position -- proper technique, footwork, running backward, covering tight ends. Hes also trying to become more instinctive where he can instantly react to what he sees instead of hesitating.Hansen wants to hit like Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and cover like Baltimore Ravens safety and former Ute Eric Weddle.Two things, hes smart and hes athletic, Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley said. You cant play safety here if youre not athletic and hes athletic and fast and is able to do it. So the physical ability is No. 1. Then No. 2, how bright he is. ... We ask a lot of our strong safeties in terms of knowing the defenses and being able to do a bunch of different things and communicate that to the rest of the defense. Hes perfect for that.Utah cornerback Dominique Hatfield added, Coming from quarterback you probably wouldnt think a guy would be as physical as him, but he works hard.Whittingham believes playing quarterback helped because the position requires a high football IQ. Hansen got plenty of study time during the spring while recovering from the injury. He acknowledged learning was difficult, but there was a level of relief in switching positions. Theres so much that goes into playing the quarterback position, but safety allows him to let loose, fly around and hit people.It was more of just switching the switch to my more aggressive mindset, Hansen said. Which I feel like Ive always kind of had.I guess Ill never know what kind of quarterback I would have been, but I feel like I can become a better safety. I have more potential as a safety, I guess.Its all safety all the time these days, but Hansen is technically the emergency quarterback. Williams and Huntley are the lone quarterbacks on the roster after Brandon Cox decided to transfer in the fall. That chapter of his playing career appears over, but those memories do linger.Id be lying if I said I didnt think about whether or not Id still ever play the position, Hansen said. Because they even told me if something happens you have to be ready to come play some quarterback as well. Which I was all for. ... The reason I loved it so much is because you can have a huge impact on the game. Bigger than any other position, obviously.But at this point I dont think Ive looked back, especially seeing as well as Troy is doing, seeing the type of quarterback Tyler is, I havent looked back.

SSP Chawrasia is a tired but relieved man. Chawrasia, Indias second-ranked male golfer, took a flight from Scotland to India and learnt upon landing in his native Kolkata that he will be part of the three-member Indian contingent when golf returns as an Olympic sport next month in Rio.I was sure I would qualify, but I was still checking my phone from time to time, Chawrasia told ESPN, dismissing suggestions that the absence of the worlds top four golfers will take the sheen off the event. The field is still a strong one and I dont think the withdrawals will have any effect.Chawrasia, who will be in Brazil for the first time in his life, will be following a rigorous training schedule over the next three weeks, and is not sure if he will participate in any event before the Olympics.Ill be going to the Royal Calcutta Golf Club for three hours in the morning and two hours every evening, and then Ill also be keeping up my gym work to stay in the best shape, hhe said.ddddddddddddThere wont be any first time blues though for Anirban Lahiri, who won silver at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha in the team competition alongside Gaganjeet Bhullar, Chiragh Kumar and Joseph Chakola.Right from the time Anirban was a junior, weve had some long-term goals for him, Vijay Divecha, Lahiris coach, told ESPN from Toronto, Canada. (Getting a chance to play) majors is obviously something every aspiring golfer aims for. And getting to go to the Olympics is just a fantastic bonus.Divecha, who is travelling with Bengaluru-born Lahiri to make sure his preparations for Rio are up to the mark in the busy schedule ahead in the next month, is also pleased that Aditi Ashok will be part of the womens competition this year. Weve known Aditi since she was seven years old. Its great to have her as part of the team.
