What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?
I love the game, to compete and work on the field and in the offseason. I take pride in being a leader and helping my teammates be better. 2 way Varsity starter as a Soph at DT and OG. Started Varsity at OG as a Fresh. Moving to DE and HBack for my Jr. year. 2019 All Region and All County DL and led my team in TFLs, Sacks, Fumbles Recovered & Blocked Kicks. 2X Team USA Team Captain in the 2018 & 2019 International games and DE. 2X All Region Wrestler and won the 2018 / 2019 Mat Monster Award for most pins. 3 Sport Varsity Athlete (Wrestling & Lacrosse) with 6 Varsity letters through Soph year.
Shugarts has improve his strength a good bit in just the last 8 months, adding nearly 30 lbs to his frame and now over 250 lbs. There is no doubt that he is filling out his frame well, and there is still plenty room to grow, which makes one wonder, where does Shugarts fit at the college level? Junior year he is slotted to play both defensive end and h-back for his squad. Watching film, and I really like Shugarts ability to get off the line and angle his body around blocks. He has good length, and is able to get leverage then rip thru his blocks. Shugarts is a leader too, taking leadership roles in youth football, and it’s safe to see him stepping up his junior year as a team leader. The 2021 athlete understands his role, plays heads-up football, and does a very good job of pursuing the ball carrier from the backside cleaning up the play. I can see the 2021 recruit continuing to add good weight, and should be over 270 lbs. in college as a SDE. Solid lateral quickness for his frame, and good overall core strength – you can see his background in wrestling and lacrosse ooze thru his football film. Junior year, Shugarts has shown very good energy right off the snap and a lot of good hustle plays with backside tackles – he leads his team with 10 tackles per game. At h-back, he looks very good as a blocker with good strength at the point of attack but also stays engaged and dominates his opponent. Finished off his junior year with 76 solo tackles, 114 total and 22 tackles for loss while also playing some OL too where he had 36 pancakes. He’s hearing from a slew of D1 programs at the moment. Toledo, Army, NC State, Wofford, and Charleston Southern on top of offers from Morehead State, Saint Francis, Tenn Tech and Air Force. My prediction is that Shugarts has a huge start to his senior year and the FBS offers start pouring in here.
2019 STATS: 76 Solo, 38 Assists, 22 TFL, 7 Sacks, 34 Hurries, 3 Blocked Kicks, 1 Forced Fumble, 1 Pass Defended & 36 pancakes
