Welcome back to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.
We sat down with RBR linebacker Chris Outterbridge, who was named to the 2nd Team All-Shore in his junior season and the 3rd Team All-Shore this year.
Name: Chris Outterbridge
Sport in College: Football
College: Sacred Heart University (Fairfield, CT)
Buc to: Pioneer
What to follow*: @SHU__Football
In five years, I’ll be: a nurse–maybe in six years.
Bagel Order: Plain bagel with cream cheese
EB: Why Sacred Heart?
CO: I had a really good connection with the coaches and I loved my visit when I went up there. I just felt like I was at home. It was fun to be up there (and) was a good atmosphere. My family was into it a lot, and it just felt like the right place.
EB: What has RBR football taught you?
CO: It has taught me leadership, patience, mental toughness, and loyalty. It also taught me how to go from winning and then experience a lot of losses, but (overall) it was fun.
EB: What’s your favorite RBR football memory?
CO: I have two. When we beat RBC was definitely one because we never beat RBC. States, even though we lost, was a good atmosphere and it felt good to play. We showed that we had a lot of support.
