NEW ORLEANS HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PLAYER CLIFF CHATTMAN TOMORROW MORNING ON TODAY
New Orleans Saints Host Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football
STAMFORD, Conn. – October 1, 2015 – Tomorrow's "Together We Make Football" segment on TODAY highlights New Orleans native and high school football player Cliff Chattman.
When Katrina struck in 2005, Cliff Chattman was only 8 years old. Determined to wait out the storm, the Chattman family stayed put in their home, which flooded with water and trapped the family on the second floor when the storm hit. The family eventually managed to get to a nearby bridge, where they were some of the last people to be rescued by the National Guard.
Despite the obstacles his family faced, Cliff never gave up his dream of playing football. His family returned home to New Orleans after spending a year in Houston. He's now a senior defensive back on his high school football team and has garnered interest from college recruiters. Cliff recently committed to play close to home, at LSU.
