Shawn Conway, Seaholm’s multi-sport star, has verbally accepted a football scholarship to play football for Rich Rodriguez at the University of Michigan.

Seaholm junior wideout Shawn Conway verbally committed to University of Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez late last month.Conway joined many of the state’s top gridiron standouts in Ann Arbor for Junior Day, however Conway left with something most did not. He was offered a football scholarship to play for a program with more wins than any other college football team in history.

To say the least, this was a pleasant surprise for Conway.

“I had no idea that Coach Rodriguez was going to offer me a scholarship,” said Conway. “I was just happy to be in Ann Arbor for Junior Day, and then he asked me if I wanted to be a Wolverine.”

Richaud Pack, Conway’s cousin and varsity basketball teammate, believes Conway will make an impact at the next level.

“Shawn will be successful at U of M because he is a physical specimen and a freak on the football field,” said Pack. “He is going to tear it up at Michigan.”

Conway received this offer despite a lack of monster numbers, finishing his junior campaign with only three touchdowns, 11 catches, and 217 yards.

Defensively, Conway could play cornerback, having a distinct size and strength advantage over smaller wide receivers.

Offensively, Conway would be able to use these same advantages to exploit undersized cornerbacks and come down with “jump balls.”

Conway was clear about what excites him the most about being a wolverine.

“The Big House,” said Conway. “I’m looking forward to playing in the Big House (Michigan Stadium) in front of those huge crowds. I mean, I can’t wait.”
