What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?

I stand out on and off the field, I also have good characteristics. I play hard & physical every play. I rushed for 1,100 yards & 10 touchdowns.

Sheppard ran for 1100 yards a a sophomore, and someone that the coaching staff is very high on. He is a relentless back with solid balance to step over tackles. Sheppard has a strong lower body for sure. The 2022 back gets behind his pads and lowers his shoulder when taking on contact. He has pretty quick feet moving laterally, especially for a more stout framed back. Acceleration is okay, but top end speed is just average for his size. To be honest, Sheppard looks like he could lose some weight honestly and try to really work on his agility. No doubt, he’s a naturally thick guy, and the acceleration to his top speed gashes up defense. Want to see him continue to get tough yardage too, he breaks some tackles, but want to see more honestly. Seems like a good young man, and I’m impressed with the progress in running routes, even splitting out at receiver.
