An early favorite in the Northeastern Conference, the Duquesne University football team faces great expectations this season. Ready to exceed them all is senior Chris King, who already earned pre-season All-American accolades. Coming off a stellar season, which included leading the conference in receiving yards and finishing sixth in the country for touchdown receptions, King is determined to help his teammates rule the conference this year. “As a team, we hope to do way better than last year and improve on every facet,” King says. “We need to get back on that winning track, as we should be.” The key element to this success is King’s chemistry with quarterback Dillion Buechel. The players were part of the same recruiting class and have been close friends throughout their four years of playing together. “Last season, we were really good, clicking on all cylinders. Then, he got injured,” King says. “But we’re excited for this year. The sky’s the limit for us.”
