Jaybo Shaw, a Flowery Branch graduate and current member of the Georgia Southern football team, was honored with the Erk Russell Award at the team’s annual postseason banquet Saturday night.

The Erk Russell Award is given by the coaching staff to the player who most exemplified the character, morals, ethics and actions of former Eagles coach Erk Russell.

Shaw led Georgia Southern (10-5) to an appearance in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision semifinals, while throwing for 1,233 yards and five touchdowns and rushing for 514 yards and 16 touchdowns. The rising senior led the team in total offense with 116.5 yards per game.

Georgia Southern begins spring practice on March 22 and concludes the 15-practice spring schedule with the annual Blue-White game on April 15.
