Shaw has Both Eyes on the Prize
With several top college recruits on the Trotwood-Madison offense one might think there to be some in team fighting to get the football. While each of the Rams offensive weapons are not afraid to take the ball in crunch time, no one is missing out working towards achieving the teams main goal of getting to the state championship game. For Michael Shaw he knows team goals come before personnel goals to reach the main prize. Friday night was another example of the Rams using their weapons and fighting for another victory. While Domonick Britt and Roy Roundtree each had big games, Shaw used all of his skills to make his presence known. While Britt has a lot of weapons to use, Shaw is still the one he keeps for emergency purposes and that showed Friday night. For the game Shaw rushed for only 41 yards, but did his biggest damage catching 5 passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. But stats don't tell the whole story when you watch Shaw. Trotwood had come from behind after trailing for most of the night against Troy. With the ball and the clock running down the Rams scored as Britt hit Shaw and the speedy running back took the ball down the sideline until he was forced to dive for the end zone. Shaw scored but the Rams still trailed 19-18 with a kicking game that has struggled this season. Trotwood coaches made the call to go for two and the Rams lined up all eyes were on Shaw. At the snap Britt looked at two options and when he looked towards Shaw the Troy defense sent three defenders his way opening up the hole Britt needed to score the two point conversion and give the Rams the points needed for the victory. While Shaw has tons of talent, his overall game is improving each week as he learns different ways to be effective on the field. We spoke with Michael after the game and have this video interview with the clip of the touchdown mentioned above.
