“It means a lot,” said Shannon. “There is a lot of tradition at Ursuline. There were a lot of great athletes there.

That season Shannon led the Irish 10-3 into the State Final Four. You’re going to take on Port Clinton on Friday night.
“We’re obviously doing a pretty good run in the playoffs now and that was our goal this year and our ultimate goal is a state championship, so it’s going pretty well so far,” said Shannon.
Shannon is equally impressive on the baseball field. Last season he led the Irish in almost every stroke category including doubles, threes and basic percentage. On the hill, he led the team in ERA and tied for wins. Shannon will continue his baseball career at the University of Central Florida next year. It was his goal to play somewhere in the south.
“It’s warm down there. I don’t know if I’m going to get a tan, ”he joked. “I’ll probably get quite a sunburn down there, but hopefully I’ll get used to it.”
On the court, Shannon was a conference-only pick in his junior year, approaching 1,000 points.
Shannon excels in the classroom too, with a GPA of 3.8.
“I always try my best to stay on top of things in school, at school, in the field and outside of things,” he said.
Shannon is also a student ambassador and volunteer for the football team.
“We were helping out with the Youngstown City Police last year handing out candy for Easter, that was pretty cool.”
