Ben Chenal is a Pro Football Linebacker

Before becoming the home to multi-million dollar mansions, a country club, and lifestyle shopping centers like Chenal Valley in Little Rock’s west end, it was little more than an uninhabited wooded wilderness known as Shinall Mountain and surrounding areas – once used for timber harvesting and cattle ranching purposes.

Early Life and Education

Ben was inspired by farmer YouTubers to start his own farm. Starting out small with chickens and ducklings, his farm gradually expanded with animals such as pigeons, squirrels, prairie dogs, raccoons, ostriches, and even a kangaroo!

Ben attended Baylor University and majored in psychology and neuroscience, but found this course unappealing; thus he switched his concentration to business studies.

An animal rescuer who runs The Urban Rescue Ranch. He cares for injured/abandoned animals before rehabbing them before making YouTube videos about his work there and earning money through advertisements on videos or merchandise sales as well as donations through GoFundMe or Patreon platforms. Furthermore, he holds both a rehabilitation license and is an experienced animal trainer.

Professional Career

Chenal stands 6-2 and 261 pounds and exudes toughness on both his body and play. His size and strength allow him to displace players for running backs who require extra yards on runs.

Last season, he was one of the premier linebackers in college football, amassing 115 tackles and 18.5 tackles for loss to garner both Big Ten Conference and first-team All-American honors.

He combines classic, thumper style with exceptional leadership qualities, making him ideal for strong-side or “SAM” linebacker positions, but could also play middle linebacker in a 3-4 defense.

Personal Life

Leo Chenal, the junior linebacker for the Wisconsin Badgers, has been very open about his personal life. He shares photos with his partner – which they’ve been in a relationship for four years – across his social media accounts.

According to online court records, Chenal was arrested on January 28 after a female student reported him for sexually assaulting her while working out in June in her school’s weight room. She reported messaged Chenal on Facebook the previous day inquiring as to when its hours would open for business.

Chenal was charged with both misdemeanor and felony. According to police, when she entered the weight room alone, Chenal approached behind her and touched her buttocks, breasts, and genital area. He has been charged with misdemeanor as well as felony.

Net Worth

Chenal has been actively engaging on social media platforms and boasts a significant following – over 24,000 on Facebook and 572 followers on Tiktok alone! Additionally, he has done some endorsement work.

However, his net worth remains undisclosed; but given his lifestyle and current salary, it seems likely that he must possess significant assets to invest in various ventures.

Mike Maskalunas, a senior inside linebacker, or Tatum Grass, a sophomore inside linebacker who have both started in previous seasons are expected to fill Mike’s spot as linebackers. Both players were recognized by two47 Sports, ESPN, and Rival as three-star players while Mike also received Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year honors as well as receiving the Bednarik Award as National Participant of the Week honors.
