Coaches Q&A with Steve Shiffert:
How’s he looked coming off the injury from last season?
“He has looked real good on both sides of the ball this summer after coming off his injury from last year. He has worked real hard this past year. ”
What are his strengths?
“He has two things going for him. He has excellent vision and deceptive strength. He will run into a pack and bounce out of it and he can go coast to coast. His biggest asset is the way he sees the hole, hits it and gets through it. ”
Do you want to move Shane around this year?
“I think one of our goals this year is to get him more touches. But in different spots. We feel every time he touches the ball there is a potential for him to put six points up on the board and it doesn’t matter where he is on the field. He has that knack at finding the end zone.”
