Former South Shelby Standout Shane Smith Goes Out On Top
Click Photo to Enlarge  
Shane Smith was considered to be on the small side when it came to offensive linemen that played at his level. He used his intelligence and constant study of his opponents to figure out the best way to attack them. Smith is pictured above on the right..

Two years ago Shane Smith and teammate Bryce Johnston celebrated a National Championship win. It was a unique bond they shared because they were not only teammates at Northwest Missouri State University, they were also teammates in high school at South Shelby.
   Two years later, Johnston is working on a career in the chiropractic field. Smith, a senior, found himself back in the championship game again. And again, he was fortunate to be on the winning side, earning a second championship ring in four years. Quite a feat for the kid from Shelby County.
   Smith received several individual awards as well. He was named to the College Coaches Association first-team All-America and an Associated Press Little All-America second team.
   The 6-4, 297 pound senior will now close the football chapter in his life and get ready for something new. With the work and preparation that he put into football, he is most certainly guaranteed to enter the job-world with the right attitude.
