With Pantale coming back two weeks after wideout Bobby Swigert returned from a knee injury, the Eagles offense is beginning to take the shape they had envisioned before the season.
Two of the biggest places the 6-foot-6-inch Pantale can help are on third down, where the Eagles are 10th in the ACC, and in the red zone, where they’re dead last.
“It’s going to be hard to cover a guy that size,” Amidon said. “If Chase has someone he knows can just box someone out and get 5 yards, that’s going to make third-and-mediums easier, too.”
