Broken Arrow’s Derrick Shaw is stirring up trouble for opposing offenses and college recruiters are taking notice.
According to Shaw’s Coach David Alexander, there’s nobody better at what he does in the state. “Derrick Shaw is the most disruptive defensive lineman in the state,” said Alexander “He’s in the backfield on run plays, he’s putting pressure on the quarterback up the middle on passing downs, he makes plays on both sidelines, he’s a great leader. He does a great job in the weight room. He’s been fantastic.”
The NCAA Came Calling
“I got my first offer from Montana and then after that a lot of schools started to offer me here and there. It was kind of hectic,” said Shaw. “It’s pretty special knowing that they have interest in me and want me to be a part of the program.”
All in the Family
Derrick’s older brother Jamal was another superstar at Broken Arrow and is a big inspiration and role model. “He was an all world running back here. He has a lot of records. He inspires me to go hard each and every play.”
