PERSONAL: Hounshell is the son of Chuck and Cheri Hounshell. LAKE CATHOLIC HEAD COACH MIKE BELL ON CHAD HOUNSHELL: "Chad has done a great job for us. He has been a three-year starter on defense and two on offense. He anchored down the left side for us the last two years. Chad moves exceptionally well for a big guy and that is the one thing recruiters always commented on when they visited here. He has great hands and feet and is very aggressive. He moves fast and will get down field and that is what you want to see out of an offensive lineman."
