Shannon's performance against the Generals, 96 yards on 10 carries, boasted him to the second spot in the Saluki rushing standings. He now has a 6.5 yard average per carry for 38 trips and is fourth among SIU scorers with 20 points.
Coach Al Kuwal is counting on his speedster to be ready for Southern's return in Interstate conference action Saturday (Nov. 8) at Central Michigan. Shannon and the Salukis will be looking for their first win against the league-leading Chippewas at Mt. Pleasent.
