Martinsville WR Chase Mabry delivers outstanding senior season
MARTINSVILLE, Ind. — Chase Mabry, a senior wide receiver for the Martinsville varsity football team, capped off a stellar high school career with several incredible performances during his final season for the Artesians.
It was a year in which the Artesians, after going 5-7 during the 2020 season, would have to fight through some adversity to improve in 2021. With a tough schedule against plenty of Mid-State Conference competition, Mabry would have to assume a veteran role to help galvanize the rest of the team.
Mabry’s high school football career originally began in 2019, but his impact on the field was minimal. It wasn’t until 2020 that the wide receiver began making major contributions on offense.
During his junior season, Mabry made a huge leap in his development as a wide receiver.
In 2020, one of his biggest games came against the Jennings County Panthers. He exploded for 106 yards on five receptions and two touchdowns in a game in which the Artesians dominated Jennings County by a score of 42-11.
Mabry was incredibly reliable as the team’s top wide receiver in 2021. He played in all 12 games, racking up huge numbers in several major statistical categories.
Mabry was also a difference-maker for Martinsville in several key games, propelling the Artesians to a 7-5 record during the 2021 season.
In the game against Bedford North Lawrence, Mabry was virtually unstoppable. The senior wide receiver registered 16 catches for a total of 118 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
Mabry also contributed significantly to Martinsville’s postseason victory over South Dearborn. He ended the game with 43 receiving yards and a touchdown, providing enough of an offensive buffer for the Artesians to win by a score of 38-7.
Mabry would also deliver stellar performances in regular season games against Whiteland and Plainfield, spurring the Artesians to a third-place finish in the Mid-State Conference.
Martinsville would go on a nice postseason run in 2021, but it ultimately ended against East Central in the sectional championship game.
Mabry certainly cashed in during his senior season by putting his football talents on full display. He finished out the year with 853 receiving yards, 12 touchdowns and a whopping 98 receptions. Mabry nearly doubled his numbers from the previous year, proving that he has the skill and determination to continue elevating his game.
With the season officially over, the Artesians varsity football team made significant strides in 2021, which was largely due to the contributions made by Mabry.
