Chad Shockley missed the bulk of the 2009 season with an injury, but more than made up for it in 2010 with a banner performance to highlight the Miners’ football campaign.
Shockley earned first-team all-region honors on the Daktronics squad after a year in which he tied the single-season record for receptions with 87 for 1,198 yards, setting the S&T one-year mark in that category. He also had 10 touchdown catches and 1,491 all-purpose yards during the year.
Shockley finished his S&T career second in four categories with 206 receptions, 2,652 receiving yards, 22 receiving touchdowns and 3,251 all-purpose yards.
Shockley was also named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America first team, making him the school’s 34th Academic All-America award winner since 2000.
