Who Is This FL HS Legend? Marcus Shaw/Desoto

Recommended Posts


Marcus Shaw Desoto Bulldogs;  saw a 2 hr rain delay at the Fish Bowl with him and Charlotte's Michael Bellamy, then the Number 1 and 2 rushers in the state showdown. Those two kept everybody in their seats, no one left. My youngest caused 2 fumbles that night. Played at USF

It is Marcus Shaw of Desoto, and he did play for USF.  Thanks for the Charlotte story.  Do you happen to know the answers to #4 and #5?

Thats right they are,  Pirates 

If I'm not mistaken, Braden River made the playoffs in just their 2nd year of varsity play.  The district was Hardee, Desoto, Braden River and Bayshore.  I recall coach Price, Hardee's coach at the time, staying Braden River is destined to be an instant powerhouse.

It looks like Braden River. Desoto and Braden River played twice that year, district game and 2nd round of the playoffs.

It was 2008, Braden River vs Desoto, and a spot in a 3A region final was on the line.  Desoto won 14-7 and went on to the region final, where they lost to thew eventual state champion, Cocoa.  That was rare trip beyond the second round for Desoto.
