Cal-Hi Sports Northern California Special Teams Player of the Week
(St. Ignatius, San Francisco) Sr.
We head to the Sunset District in what’s called The West Side of San Francisco less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean for our Northern California Special Teams Player of the Week.
Shannon, a 6-foot senior who besides playing on special teams also plays running back and strong safety, had an all around super outing but it’s his special teams work that’s getting recognized.
In a season-opening 42-0 blanking of crosstown West Catholic Athletic League rival Archbishop Riordan, and in a game played in bright sunshine in an area sometimes blanketed by fog, Shannon started things off with a bang.
Shannon was hindered last season by a fracture in his ankle but he wasted no time showing his speed as Riordan must have thought Shannon was shot out of a cannon after he took the opening kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown to open the rout.
On offense, Jahsai added a first quarter rushing touchdown, and on defense he had a pass interception and two additional picks negated by penalties, all before exiting midway through the third quarter to cheer on the reserves from the sidelines.
