Dutra looking forward to future at IU

BROWNSBURG — BROWNSBURG — “Electric” was one of the words that Brownsburg football coach Brett Comer used to describe his senior star running back/defensive back Chase Dutra.

Now the Indiana Hoosiers and coach Kevin Wilson are hoping Dutra brings that same spark to Bloomington next season.

The three-star recruit according to Rivals.com and the ninth-best prospect in the state signed his letter of intent Feb. 6 to play football at Indiana University.

Dutra becomes the sixth Bulldog in six years to sign a letter of intent to play Division I football and the second to play in the Big Ten.

While he still has his final semester at Brownsburg to go, Dutra is set to arrive in Bloomington.

“I am definitely ready,” he said. “It’s what you’ve dreamed for since you were a little kid, to get to the next level and to get your school paid for. The opportunity to play in such a high conference like the Big Ten and playing against multiple future NFL players or stars is a great opportunity. That’s why I’m so excited and want to take full advantage of it.”

Of Comer’s seven years as head coach at Brownsburg, Dutra was one of only three freshman to ever be called up to varsity their first year.

His game-changing quickness and hatred to lose just scratches the surface of what the once “tall, skinny kid” according to Comer will bring to the Hoosiers.

“I’m going to bring the intensity, I’m going to bring the leadership,” Dutra said. “I’m not expecting to be a leader right off the bat but I’m going to contribute. I’m going to keep kids’ heads high and I’m going to try to be the best player I can be heading into my freshman year so I can contribute as much as a possible.”
