Shawn grew up being dedicated to playing soccer, he did not decide to join the Holt varsity football team as its kicker until his junior year. His kicking ability came from playing 12 years of soccer as the team’s lead kicker, so kicking for the football team was a natural fit for him. Shawn continued playing both sports at the same time while retaining a 3.7 GPA.
Holt has won the Capitol Area Athletic Conference-I Championship three consecutive years. As a senior, Shawn had 51 kick-offs with 28 touchbacks and made 33 of 35 extra points.
Shawn thanked “all of my family, friends, coaches and teammates for all of their support and encouragement.” He also thanked “everyone who always pushed me to become better in every aspect of life.” he gave a special thanks to Coach Al Vince “for always pushing me to become better and for being one of the best coaches I have ever had.”
