5 Questions with Old Mill's Record-Setting Running Back

I sat down with Rob Chesson to learn about the young man behind all the headlines.

5 Questions with Old Mill's Record-Setting Running Back

After scoring to give Old Mill its second in three years, Rob Chesson's next school day was a little different than usual.

"I started having people come up to me I didn't even know," Chesson said. "They were all amazing, really supportive—but in my mind I was like, 'Who are you?'"

I've heard from many students that you can attend the school for four years and still meet someone for the first time on graduation day. Although has around 2,000 students, Chesson said he might have met them all in the days following his remarkable state championship-winning run. Following the state championship game on Dec. 2, Chesson said he received more than 200 Facebook friend requests in about 20 minutes.

Chesson also had one of the best seasons for a running back in the history of Maryland High School football, in rushing touchdowns with 49.
