Shaddix among Gamecocks selected to preseason team

Former Fort Payne defensive standout Michael Shaddix was among six Jacksonville State Gamecocks named to the Ohio Valley Conference's all-preseason football team Monday.

Shaddix, a junior, made the preseason All-OVC team after earning All-OVC honors as a sophomore in 2019. In earning his first All-OVC honor a year ago, he helped the JSU offensive line pave the way for the second-best offense in the OVC. Shaddix and his teammates up front cleared a path for 5,033 yards of total offense and 296 yards passing per game (13th-most in the nation).
