Career in High School

Drue Chrisman attended La Salle High School, where he was a punter and played quarterback and defense. He played in the Greater Catholic League throughout his time there.

However, owing to an injury, his days as a quarterback came to an end, and he became a punter.

He started out as a punter in YouTube videos before moving on to play alongside coach Dick Seitz.

During his senior year of high school, he averaged 46.4 and 43.0 yards per punt for LaSalle, respectively.

Chrisman was the top punter prospect in the 2016 recruiting class towards the end of high school.

Overall, he was named the best punter by both 247Sports and the respected Kohl’s kicking and punting club. In addition to that, the Scout placed him second on the list.

His quarterbacking career came to an end with a 21-yard pass. In the second quarter of the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin, it too had a fake punt.

Statistics on Collegiate Careers and Colleges

Following high school, Drue enrolled at Ohio State University.

Initially, he was billed as a redshirt freshman who would spend five years on university before pursuing his Masters’ degree.

Following that, he was a semifinalist for the prestigious Ray Guy Award and was named to the Big Ten’s Third Team. He punted 41.6 yards per punt on average.

Furthermore, in recent years, he averaged 44.3 and 45 yards per punt. In 2018, Drue ranked first in the Big Ten in net punting with 41.6 yards.

He also had 29 punts that year, which was the second-most in school history. Drue was one of the top punters in the Big Ten and nationally at the end of his senior season.

With a career average of 43.9 yards per punt, he ranked fifth in Ohio State history. According to his college stats, he punted 73 times for 3253 yards, averaging 44.6 yards per punt.

Declaration for the NFL Draft in 2021

Following his sophomore year, Drue confirmed his intention to pursue the NFL Draft in 2021. The draft for 2021 will take place from April 29 to May 1.

The teams were expected to choose two or three quarterbacks and one punter, according to sources.

Chrisman stated that he would be content merely to get drafted into the team, despite the fact that many had great expectations for him.


Despite his exceptional abilities, the punter was passed over in the NFL Draft in 2021. Despite this, he signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Cincinnati Bengals in May.

However, after releasing and re-signing him twice between May and October, the Bengals waived him in October.

In December, the Pittsburgh Steelers signed Punter to their practice squad, only to release him two days later.

A few days later, the Bengals signed Chrisman to their practice squad again but released him on January 18, 2022. Finally, the player signed a reserve/future contract with the team in February.

Girlfriend, Proposal, and Marriage

Drue Chrisman is currently married to his longtime sweetheart and girlfriend, Avery Eliason.

Before Chrisman’s iconic proposal, he had been dating Avery for just a year. As per the news, Chrisman and Avery are childhood sweethearts.

Apparently, Eliason’s family moved to Lawrenceburg, Indiana, when she was just five years old. As they grew together, they also became closer initially as a friend.

It was only during those times when Avery was on a year-and-a-half mission to Peru.

Following it, the duo wrote to each other and had thriving feelings for each other. Later, they took a step out of their “friend zone” and started dating.

Spring Game Proposal

Back in April 2019, Drue had the biggest turn in his life during the spring game.

Indeed, he proposed to his girlfriend, Avery, during halftime, which in no instant hit as one of the viral proposals. For every reason, it did stand as a ‘couple goal.’

In fact, Chrisman also portrayed one of the smoothest tricks for the proposal.

Without any suspicions for Avery, he managed to bring her on the field to kick a goal. Back then, Avery was watching the game from the stands.

Apparently, she was with the former Ohio State kicker Sean Nuernberger and his girlfriend.

Right then, as the halftime was announced, snapper Liam McCullough’s girlfriend (part of the OSU’s fan engagement team) asked Avery to participate in the kicking contest.

Also, Avery stood without any doubt and progressed with the very first kick she thought she was giving in her life.

Drue was kneeling to help Avery with the fake kick and, of course, more suitable for his proposal.

Then, McCullough passed the ball while Drue held it in place. Right when she proceeded to kick, Drue signaled her to stop while discreetly reaching out for the engagement ring.

Chrisman made his proposal, and Avery accepted it while the whole stadium roared for the congratulatory wishes. Additionally, Blake Haubeil came running to the couple for the wishes.

Way past the time, the duo had floods of wishes and roars in and out of the stadium while his proposal went viral worldwide.

Not to mention, they had floods of wishes and congratulatory notes all over the weekend.

Behind the Scenes

With the great iconic moment, no fans and couple would ever forget, Chrisman did have to arrange many beforehand.

According to the sources, he had initially planned to propose to her during their first anniversary.

However, his friend suggested doing it during the spring game as it also marked his advancement to the third season as the Buckeyes’ starting punter.

In the end, the moment was ever so special, with a large crowd of Ohio State fans watching.

Right then, he had also stated that he might have even put the ring in a bottle and done a bottle flip with it at first.

He also stated that he was nervous during the gameplay about his halftime.

Nervousness also felt its way with Avery Eliason when she was asked to make the kick.

Altogether, to make the proposal a success, Drue first gained the approval of Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith and head coach Ryan Day.

Furthermore, the special team’s coach also assisted him by holding out his ring for him during the game.

Social Distancing Wedding

The duo held out their wedding amidst the coronavirus outbreak the next year after the proposal.

In March 2020, the duo tied the knot with social distancing measures.

The duo shared their pictures on their social media sites during the private wedding.

As the bride was adorned in the white mermaid gown and a bit of lace, the groom was in a black suit with a bowtie.

Furthermore, they wore masks and had hand sanitizers.
