Windthorst's Lindley Signs with HPU

Windthorst senior defensive end Chase Lindley signed Thursday morning to play football for Howard Payne University!

He recorded 181 tackles in his senior season, on his way to earning All-District 4-2A Div. I and both AP and TSWA All-State honors, and an invite to play in the Green Belt Bowl this coming June in Childress.

He told Newschannel 6 Thursday that while he grew up dreaming of playing at a big school like the University of Texas, he's happy with his decision to go to the Brownwood school, whose campus and small-town feel he said appealed to him.
