Chungh was selected second overall in the 2015 CFL Draft by Winnipeg and would start 69 games over four seasons with the Blue Bombers. He was named a West Division All-Star in 2018 before joining his hometown Lions as a free agent.

The Port Coquitlam native enjoyed four solid years with the Calgary Dinos, earning both Canada West All-Star and CIS All-Canadian honours in 2013 and 2014.

Along with winning three provincial football titles at Terry Fox Secondary, Chungh was a standout in weightlifting, setting school records in bench press and squats.
