Shaw Schedules Pigskin Preview for August 28


RALEIGH, N.C. —Shaw University will hold its second annual Pigskin Preview on Wednesday, August 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the Marriott Courtyard - Crabtree.  The event gives the media and fans a chance to ask question of Shaw coaches and select players.


The Bears enter the season looking to replace quarterback James Stallons, who rewrote the Shaw passing record book.  Thus far, the competition for the position has been fierce, led by Quinshon Odoms who saw time in the starter's slot in 2011.


Second year head coach Robert Massey will headline the event, and will be accompanied by players including  preseason All-CIAA cornerback and kick returner Darnell Evans. 


Shaw opens the 2013 football season with a home contest against Charleston (WV) on Saturday, September 7 at 1:00 p.m. at the Durham County Memorial Stadium.  Both single game and season tickets are on sale now.


The Marriott Courtyard Crabtree is located at 3908 Arrow Drive, off Glenwood Avenue near the Crabtree Valley Mall.
