SLIMMEST OF MARGINS

• Senior WR Sean Myers has been a dependable target for both Chapman quarterbacks this year. Myers leads the SCIAC with 5.7 catches per game this season.
• Myers has caught multiple passes in every game this year and has hauled in a touchdown in each of the last five games.
• The senior has set career-highs and leads the Panthers with 40 catches for 558 yards and six touchdowns. He also had a career long catch of 72 yards for a touchdown against Cal Lutheran.
• Redlands has, by far, the best record against Chapman than any of the SCIAC schools. Redlands owns the all-time advantage 14-4-1.
