Eric Shaw made his return to the football field in a big way.

The South Carolina commit, who missed last season with an ACL injury, had 15 tackles, four loss, a sack and a forced fumble in helping Reeltown (Alabama) to an 18-6 win over Bullock County on Thursday night.

“It really feels great to help my team win again,” Shaw told alexcityoutlook.com. “I don’t think too much about personal stats, I just want to help them and so when I do that, I just want to lead by example on every single play.”
