Shackelford inspired by bye week victory

It’s funny how work can sometimes follow you home.

Last weekend D.T. Shackelford got away from it all — or tried to at least.

Taking advantage of the bye week, the sophomore linebacker packed his bags and went home to Decatur, Ala., to re-charge and see family.

While there he got a chance to see his alma mater, the Austin Black Bears, take on higher ranked Gadsden City and win.

The last-second 33-30 upset got Shackelford thinking about Ole Miss’ similar task at hand, which according to Shackelford, was a good thing after all. (October 13, 2010, Page 6)
