Washington State Football 2012 Evals: LB Chester Su’a


October 27, 2012; Stanford, CA, USA; Stanford Cardinal quarterback Josh Nunes (6) is sacked by Washington State Cougars linebacker Chester Su

Stats: 35 Tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 1 forced fumble

What he accomplished in 2012: Chester Su’a was the most experienced LB due to the dismissal of Mizell and Kaufusi. He had a solid season but wasn’t a huge part of the defense as the season went on.

Su’a began the season as the starter but as guys started to step up like Darryl Monroe, he quickly began to lose quite a big of playing time. He was expected to have a huge impact on the defense but that wasn’t the case at all and it surprised quite a few people.

What I expect in 2013: What do I expect? I really don’t expect a whole lot from Chester Su’a in 2013, I do hope I’m wrong though.

I don’t see him having a huge impact on the defense next season because of the progress the other linebackers made. It’ll be interesting to see how things play out for him this spring. He’ll mostly get time on special teams but very limited time on defense. Chester Su’a was one of everyone’s favorite recruits back when he had committed to Washington State. It’ll be extremely strange to see him basically all but non-existent next season.
