South Florida defensive tackle Todd Chandler was a close friend of Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and feels his former high school teammate is a lot more than one of the best college quarterbacks in the nation.
Chandler has known the Cardinals star since before their days at Miami Northwestern High. He says in addition to being a smart player who's "great under pressure," Bridgewater is an even better person off the field - humble, compassionate and an inspiration for kids growing up in their neighborhood back home.
Bridgewater will lead No. 18 Louisville against USF on Saturday. The junior has completed 72 percent of his passes and thrown for 20 touchdowns and just two interceptions this season.
