A few years before tapping in as GH’s Michael, Chad Duell was a wide receiver and defensive end for his high school football team. “It’s my sport,” he confirms. “I would have been safety, but I hurt my shoulder, so they put somebody else there. Somebody tackled me during practice, fell on my shoulder and twisted stuff up.
I’m still upset about that!” While Duell has clearly maintained his athletic frame, he enjoys his football games from the stands these days. “I’m an Arizona Cardinals fan, so I hate the L.A. Rams,” he grumbles. “But I get to watch the Cardinals whenever they come to L.A., so that’s good!” Despite loving the sport, Duell isn’t much of a betting man. “I used to bet a little bit in Vegas,” he concedes. “I wanted to bet on a sporting event at least once in my life, just for fun. It gave me a high the first time, but now I’m like, ‘Eh. What’s the point?’”
Former high school player Duell still loves football.
