A standout two-way lineman from Canfield, Ohio, Chamoun epitomized the toughness and versatility of the George Welsh era. Chamoun was one of the stalwarts of an offensive line that dominated the ACC on the ground, clearing the way for All-Americans Tiki Barber and Thomas Jones. The Cavaliers, with Aaron Brooks at quarterback, had one of the most explosive offenses in the country during this time, with Chamoun earning All-ACC honors for his efforts. His career ending knee injury in the 1998 Virginia Tech game provided a key inspiration that helped spur the greatest comeback victory in that rivalry’s history.

Fady's professional career saw a return to Ohio where he entered the family business, Aladdin's Eatery, with Family, Faith, and Community serving as guiding principles. Chamoun became deeply invested in the area's youth sports programs, coaching his sons Camille and Anthony, and with Aladdin's regularly sponsoring teams and camps, including that of All-Pro and Super Bowl champion Aaron Donald.

Chamoun passed away in June after a years long battle with cancer. Powerful and undeniable as an athlete, as a man, his open heart and ability to connect with the people in his life made him stand out even more.
