SEASON OUTLOOK

2007 Record: 5-5

Shaw missed the playoffs with the No. 14 ranking in Division II, Region 5 last year. However, few teams in its area return with more talent and this could be the season the Cardinals qualify for the postseason.

Williams was the only sophomore to make first-team All-Northeast District last year, and he was also named second-team All-Ohio.

Cook was a first-team all-district and second-team all-state selection, Powell was a first-team all-district selection and Drake was a second-team all-district pick. Shaw boasts more returning all-district performers than any team in Region 5.

However, the Cardinals need to find a quarterback following the graduation of first-team all-district/second-team All-Ohio selection Kevin Woods. They also lose first-team All-Ohio DB Marshon Williamson.
