Chaz Hine, Management

Chaz Hine is passionate about sports.  Hine earned a spot on the USF football team as a walk-on in 2007.  His work ethic soon had him starting at offensive guard as coaches and players alike call him a mentor and leader on the field.  Named to the Big East All-Academic team in 2009 and ESPN Academic All-District team in 2010, the guard devotes hours to practicing, traveling, and playing with the team.

Hine tackles academics with the same passion, evidenced by his membership in an invitation-only honor society for business students. He has earned several academic scholarships and is part of USF’s Honors College, where his thesis focuses on how leadership “influence tactics” affect employee job stress.

The student-athlete has a third passion: musical theater.  His inspirations include both classical and pop artists, as he can be heard singing a soft bel canto in an opera house.  He has been the male lead in the musicals “Les Misérables,” “Grease,” and “Hello, Dolly.”

Hine is a founding member of the Student Coalition Against Homelessness, an organization linking students with opportunities to assist poverty-stricken families.  He is also a member of Disciples for Life.

  1. I am so excited to see a student with the caliber of Chaz in the 25 under 25 group. He is a very special young man who is dedicated to everything he puts his hand to. I am inspired by his passionate pursuit of excellence in academics, leadership, community service, and athletics. He is a young man bent on making a positive difference in the world and it is a privilege to be counted among his friends. Good Luck Chaz!

  2. Not only is Chaz a remarkable singer and student, but he also has the most amazing personality. He truly cares for others and is dedicated in everything he does. I could not choose a person more perfect for this position. Best of Luck Chaz!

  3. Chaz is the one of the most intellegent and amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of having as a friend. He can accomplish whatever he sets his mind to with outstanding performances whether on the football field or theatrical stage. Good Luck to Chaz and please vote for him 🙂

  4. I was on the football team with Chaz!! You can’t say enough about how great a friend, teammate, mentor, and leader, he was! But most importanly Chaz is a great person!! He is someone you would like to model yourself after, someone I look up to. I’ve never once heard a negative thing said from him even through the toughest times we shared on and off the field!! He is always positive and it’s easy to see that he lives his life for God!! You the man Chaz!! Proud of you Buddy!!

    1. You couldn’t be more right Ben. I grew up playing little league baseball with Chaz and football against him. He is a great person and he made a positive impact on the other people we played with even at a young age. My father always tells people he was a privelage to coach and I say he was a privelage to have as a teammate. Keep up the great work CHAZ!!!

  5. Chaz is the man. Truth is, there will be many among this competition that will be great candidates on paper and even in a business setting, but rare is the one whose character is consistent despite the setting or people he’s around. Chaz is genuine, sincere, loyal, dependable, and a great friend. Anyone can build a resume, but few can build character, and that is why he deserves to win this elite honor. Good luck Chaz, we’re barracking for you!

  6. Chaz is one-of-a-kind and I can’t think of anyone more deserving for the Top 25 under 25! I had class with Chaz last semester, and we worked on a semester long group project together. His constant positivity and drive to improve, especially when the project became difficult, was extremely admirable. Chaz is dedicated, hardworking and dependable and always stepped up when something needed to be done–he is a perfect example of a leader and team player! Good luck Chaz! 🙂

  7. I have known Chaz for a few years and the traits that stands out to me about Chaz are his integrity and loyalty. He works hard at all he does because he is a man with a sense of and devotion to what is right. He is devoted to is family, friends and team and his loyalty is endearing. I hope that Chaz wins this award because he represents it’s values well. Chaz, you’ve got my vote! Godspeed!

  8. It is so rewarding to see that Chaz has this opportunity to be honored in this way. He is a very special young man and he has a high degree of intergrity and he is very deserving of this honor. He has a way of making others feel that they count and he has always been there to of assistance to anyone in need. Good Luck Chaz

  9. Athletes, especially athletes playing the most publicized sport at a BCS School, sometimes deserve the poor reputation they get. Athletes can be arrogant, they can take the easy way out by picking the weakest majors, and they can be irresponsible.

    Chaz is a mold-breaker. He is one of the most under-rated linemen in the Big East, I’d argue one of the most under-rated in the country (Ask D’Quan Bowers how he fared against the line anchored by Hine); his voice is simply unparalleled by 99% of USF Students, because it is simply amazing. He is incredibly intelligent, picking a tediously difficult major and maintaining his place in the Honors College! . And for those that know him, and I have followed him since he was the IHOP (International House of Pancakes, look up what a “pancake” is in linemen’s terms for those who don’t know) at Newsome High, we know that above all else, he is incredibly humble, keeps God and his family at the highest priority, and truly embodies the model of speaking softly and carrying a big stick

    Up here in Columbia, SC, our quarterback just got suspended for a fifth (Yes, FIFTH) time. He has been caught drinking underage, has been caught with women in his room the night before the Chick-Fil-A bowl, and recently, he embarassed the University of South Carolina at an SEC-Sponsored conference. If he had half the heart of Chaz, half the character of Chaz, half the sense God gave a watermelon, he could be a first-round pick. But instead, he’s likely going to be at the grill the local Waffle House. If Chaz doesn’t make it to the pros, he still has more potential in his big finger than our moron QB does in his whole body.

    It’s a privelege to be your friend, Chaz, and you are someone I truly look up to. It’s an honor to vote for you.

  10. I have known this young man since he was born. I am so proud of his accomplishments academically as well as his sportsmanship. His honesty and integrity are a shining example of his upbringing. I believe that this young man can accomplish everything that he sets out to do and he will be a great asset to the business world. We need more people like him to make this a great world. Chaz never meets a stranger, has an intense faith and alway tries to help his fellow man. Good luck to you Chaz and congratulations for the honor of being selected to this fine group of fellow students. It is well deserved.

  11. What an amazing young man! I’ve only met Chaz when he was very young but knew his parents pretty well in the late 80s and early 90s. What a great story! Great families with a great upbringing creates greatness. Family alone didn’t bring him to where he is today. He had to take those tools and do something with him. And he did! All the best to you Chaz! Awesome work!

  12. I think that Chaz Hine should be honored because he is an exception to the rule for most young men. I have never had the opportunity to meet Chaz in person but I work with his father. I know that every parent is proud of their child but there is certainly something different about the Hine family as a whole. There is something to be said for raising your children to have high integrity and keeping the focus on God. In the last year and a half, I have enjoyed hearing how much Chaz has accomplished. As a mother of a 9 year old son, I feel great knowing that there are still role models for him out there that can do what they love and still keep their faith a priority. That you can be an amazing singer and turn around and be athletic also is amazing. Like one of the other posts mentioned, his does break the mold of being “typical”. While their are many bios on here that are wonderful, I can only speak to the one I know of. I wish Chaz all of the blessings and I hope that he is chosen for this honor! GOOD LUCK CHAZ!!!
