Meet Eric Shaw.
Shaw was drafted in the 13th round, No. 310 overall, during the 1992 NFL draft and played 28 games in three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. The former backup linebacker and special teams player started 10 games, nine of which came in 1993 where he generated 50 tackles (sixth on the team that year) and a forced fumble.
After playing for Louisiana Tech University, Shaw spent a year in the Canadian Football League playing for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Eventually Shaw left the NFL and joined the Lafayette high school football team, spending 12 seasons on the sidelines and most recently as the team's defensive coordinator. On Saturday the high school announced that Shaw will be promoted as the team's head coach, replacing Carl Hayden, who resigned to take an administrative role at another high school.
"We're going to keep it going,"Shaw told WKYT. "Keep it moving. I'm going to be me. We're looking forward to a great season."
