Casting Rays Star Wars: Steven Souza as Chewbacca

Looking at the picture above, you can almost hear him roar. At 6’4″ 225, he’s a beast to be reckoned with and the beard helps him attain that fur like appearance. Like Chewy, his approach at the plate can be aggressive, and he’s likely to tear the cover off the ball when he does make contact.

Souza just completed a 58″ box jump and has the power that you’d expect Chewy to have if he did swing a big stick. This one was almost too easy to match, and let’s hope he’s as good at supporting Longo (Solo) in the lineup as Chewy is good at supporting Solo.
