Statistics: Chambless threw for 705 yards and ran for 961 more as a junior.
Honors: Following the 2002 season, Chambless was named to the all-district first-team for the second consecutive season. He was also named to the All-South Texas squad. He was also chosen the Most Valuable Player of the district.
Favorite Schools: Chambless is receiving mail from schools across the country but currently has the most interest in Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Colorado, Oklahoma State and Texas Christian.
Skinny: Chambless is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the state of Texas for the Class of 2004 according to Calallen assistant coach Dale Lamb.
"He is a real good all-around athlete," Lamb said. "He can do it all. He can throw. He can run. He's going to be one really good one this year. He's got a strong arm to get the ball down the field. And when it isn't there he can tuck the ball and run it down the field too.
"He ran for nearly 1,000 yards and threw for 700. He gives us that threat each play out there to do either."
Chambless is receiving heavy interest from a lot of schools at this early point.
"He's getting letters of interest from schools all over. Some of them he likes a little more than others obviously. But he's not favoring anyone at this point. It's too early for that."
Lamb likes what Chambless offers for the Wildcat offense in 2003.
"He is a big strong kid. He can stand in there and not get beaten up. He can also move out of the way to buy himself some time to let the play develop if he needs to."
