In all, Shaw has worked with 122 NFL first-round draft choices, including 10 No. 1 picks, and nine Super Bowl MVPs.
Shaw grew up in the Tampa Bay area and is a graduate of Central Michigan University. He went on to complete his Master’s degree at CMU and later completed course work toward his Ph.D. at Florida State University. He was the assistant track coach at Florida State University for eight seasons before becoming the speed and conditioning coach for the New Orleans Saints for six seasons.
