The world was first introduced to Shannon Sharpe as a tight end for the Denver Broncos. But before Sharpe began torching defensive backs in the NFL, he did that and then some at Savannah State. We came across a Youtube clip from Savannah State vs. SIAC rival Fort Valley State in 1988 with Sharpe playing wide receiver as a junior.
Sharpe had a great day with 197 yards through the air while SSU put up 553 yards of total offense in a 41-14 win over their in-state rivals.
And check out this one-handed catch to close the game. http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf?vurl=Gjf7mWpKgUk&start=954&end=965&cid=6529093
Watch him toe the line vs. Fayetteville State.
And then make an incredible catch and an interesting dance.
