DUSTIN SHOAF - Pittsburgh Post Gazette Player of the Week - 9/19/18
The past week: Shoaf rushed for 401 yards in Yough’s 32-13 win against Deer Lakes. So far this season, Shoaf has rushed for 1,047 yards and 12 touchdowns on 103 carries, plus a 2-point conversion.
Check this out: The 6-1, 205-pound senior is the first player in WPIAL history to run for 400-plus yards in two games, as he also accomplished this once last year.
Did you know you’re the first player in WPIAL history to rush for 400 or more yards in two different games? I actually just found that out today. I don’t know if you talked to coach Woody [Scott Wood], but he’s the one who told me that. It’s actually very exciting to know. Very happy about that, and that’s very cool to be remembered as, so I’m pretty excited about it.
How would you describe your running style? I’m more the running back of, I’m fine with 3 yards and a cloud of dust, as they would say in the olden days I guess. I can put moves on, but I’m more the running back that will put his shoulder down and run people over.
Is there anything specific you want to accomplish in your last season? My only goal this year is to help get my team to the playoffs. We have the talent, we have the team this year, the only thing that’s going to hold us back from that is ourselves. That’s pretty much my only goal this year, is to [strive for that]. They haven’t made it since 2013, so it’d be something, to leave something like that at Yough.
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you? I love to play the guitar. I took a guitar class last year and I just fell in love with it. I can do a couple chords, that’s all. I put on the guitar and I say random words and try to put a song together and go from there.
What do you think of the Steelers season so far? I don’t know how many people are really happy with it. I’m not happy. It’s very disappointing how it’s going so far, but I feel like they’ll get together and win a couple more games and make it to the playoffs.
What about this Le’Veon Bell situation? There’s two sides to every story and you’ve got to think of it both ways. I guess you have to see Le’Veon’s side and you can see what the fans are thinking. As a fan, at a point where all you want to do is watch football and everything, it’s disappointing, but you look at Le’Veon’s side, and you’ve got to understand where he’s coming from. Running backs rarely last long, and he wants to last longer and hopefully wants to make the money, still.
